Park Avenue Armory is New York City's most dynamic new arts center, dedicated to visual and performing art that cannot be performed in traditional museums and performance halls.
Park Avenue Armory is a not-for-profit institution whose mission is to revitalize one of America's historic treasures as a dynamic alternative arts space unlike any other in New York. Part palace, part industrial shed, the Armory is dedicated to the development and presentation of work in the visual and performing arts best realized in a non-traditional setting. In its first five years of presenting arts programming, Park Avenue Armory has collaborated with other cultural institutions and commissioned work directly to provide unforgettable experiences for both artists and audiences. The 2011-2012 season presents more extraordinary artistry in music, dance, and visual and sonic art in which local and international artists extend their reach in an unconventional and breathtaking setting of scale.
