Artists in Residence
Ryan and Trevor Oakes
The Drawing Center has commissioned artists Ryan and Trevor Oakes to use the exhibition Portraits from the École des Beaux-Arts Paris as a platform to further explore the genre of portraiture.
For eight consecutive Thursdays, May 7–June 25, the artists will be in residence in our Main Gallery. Using their unique drawing techniques, they will create a group “portrait” of our space and of visitors to our gallery. One can request an hour-long reservation for a portrait sitting by emailing email@example.com.

IDEAS CITY 2015
For IDEAS CITY 2015, The Drawing Center presents Balmori Associates’ Meditation Room: Horizon a constructed continuous wall of paper where the overlapping of two dot matrix systems comes together to create a visible horizon. A city is distinguished by the presence of multiple horizon lines stacked one over another. A task of landscape in the city then may be to create the sense of an expansive horizon in the smallest of spaces. You are invited to med¬itate on this concept of the horizon and to draw your interpretation.
You can find us in Sara D. Roosevelt Park near the corner of Chrystie and Houston.
Produced by Education Director, Aimee Good.
