A new multi-year grant from the Cy Twombly Foundation will open the doors of the Drawing Center through February 2023. Starting today, February 20, visitors can see the space’s newest exhibitions, Guo Fengyi: To See from a Distance and Curtis Talwst Santiago: Can’t I Alter, free of charge. The initiative builds on the experience of a previous grant that also covered the cost of admission and increased visitor numbers by 50 percent.  

The late Cy Twombly was a painter, sculptor, photographer and draftsman, a skill that Laura Hoptman, Executive Director of the Drawing Center, said made the grant a natural extension of the organization’s mission, to widen its audience “and encourage visitors of all backgrounds” to visit the Manhattan art space.
