"One of the little art treasures of New York City."

--William Meyers, The Wall Street Journal

The Renee & Chaim Gross Foundation is the historic home and studio of American sculptor Chaim Gross (1904-91), located in the heart of downtown New York City. We are dedicated to new scholarship on Gross, his contemporaries, and the history of American art through active engagement with our extensive art collections and historic building. Open to the public Thurs and Fri 1-5 pm or by appointment.
