Chaim Gross’s Studio

ChaimGross1

I love how New York is full of little gems and secret museums- even living here for years I’m still discovering new ones. Late in his life, Sculptors Guild founder and artist Chaim Gross bought a beautiful 1830s townhouse just off Washington Square, converting its four floors to a single home with grand sculpture studio for him to work in. Gross designed the studio to double as an inspiring exhibition space, with inlaid wood floor and massive skylight for working by daylight. Today, the classic home serves as a mini museum of Gross’ wood and marble sculptures, which span from the 1920s to the 1980s. Aside from his own work, the house also has his personal art collection on display, with pieces by de Kooning, Avery Hartley and an extensive European, American and African sculpture collection. It is only open Thursday and Friday from 1 to 5, so take a mental health day and get inspired.
