The Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts is an organization and venue for the realization of a multitude of art works and forms. The work of some of today’s foremost artists, architects, and sound and space designers is featured here. Every aspect of the venue examines the relationship of people to art and art to its surroundings, and the arts venue to the surrounding world.
In the mold of a museum, exhibitions feature works of visual art that function as installations, with great consideration for space and the way pieces relate to the architecture of the Foundation building itself. Works exhibited are from various public and private collections, some of which belong to the private Pulitzer collection. However, the Foundation does not house the collection, nor is it a collecting institution.
Much the Foundation’s energy and resources are dedicated to actively developing programs and performances in music, dance, theater and literature. Lectures and seminars are featured regularly, promoting a dialogue on the ideas and issues raised by the works displayed here.
