About:

The FLAG Art Foundation, founded in 2008 by art patron Glenn Fuhrman, is a non-profit exhibition space that encourages the appreciation of contemporary art among a diverse audience.  FLAG presents four to six exhibitions a year that include artworks by international, established and emerging artists, borrowed from a variety of sources.  FLAG invites a broad range of creative individuals to curate exhibitions and works in-depth with artists to provide curatorial support and a platform to realize their own solo exhibitions.

 

FLAG’s innovative approach to foster dialogue around contemporary art includes producing artist talks, artist-led workshops, and exhibition tours for school and museum groups.  Based in the heart of Manhattan’s Chelsea art district, FLAG and all its related programs are free and open to the public.
