November 22 2011, (New York, NY) – Lincoln Center is pleased to partner with the New York Design Center on an exhibit featuring contemporary art work by 20 artists represented in the Vera List Art Project, including Jim Dine, Richard Serra, William Kentridge, Wolf Kahn, Chuck Close and Donald Baechler whose work is the latest to be commissioned for the Project. This is the first time these prints will have a showing specifically directed to the design community. It is also a unique opportunity to own a limited-edition work by some of today’s leading contemporary artists. Prices for the majority of prints in the exhibit range from $1,800 to $5,000, with all proceeds benefiting Lincoln Center. The exhibition is scheduled to run from December 6 through January 14.


An opening night celebration on December 6 will be co-hosted by Jim Druckman, NYDC President and CEO, designer David Kleinberg and designer Dennis Miller. It will bring together designers, Lincoln Center supporters and art enthusiasts. Shining a further spotlight on the arts, a jazz quartet from the Juilliard School, one of Lincoln Center’s resident organizations, will provide the entertainment.


The partnership with Lincoln Center marks the NYDC’s continuing commitment to showcasing the relationship between art and design. “The NYDC is proud to support the arts and introduce the Vera List Art Project to the design community. It is exciting to not only be able to view these works as an exhibition, but to also purchase them with proceeds benefitting Lincoln Center” explains Jim Druckman, President and CEO of the New York Design Center.

About Lincoln Center’s Vera List Art Project

Lincoln Center’s Vera List Art Project was established in 1962 by philanthropists Vera and Albert List as a way to both support the visual arts and raise funds for Lincoln Center. Since the inception of the program, Lincoln Center has commissioned major artists of the time to create works available for sale to the public. Among the artists represented are Jim Dine, Richard Serra, Helen Frankenthaler, William Kentridge, Roy Lichtenstein, Wolf Kahn, Jennifer Bartlett, and Chuck Close. Art historians and curators refer to the Vera List Art Project as a visual window on the last five decades of contemporary art: Minimalism, Pop Art, Color Field and Abstract Expressionism are only a few of the art movements represented in this Collection of outstanding prints. Limited-edition prints from the Vera List Art Project have been acquired by notable corporations, private collectors, and museums around the world, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Tate Modern Museum in London. Approaching its 50th anniversary and nearly 150 artists later, the Lincoln Center Vera List Art Project remains at the forefront of art trends, commissioning fresh, original works by a who’s who of the contemporary art world.
