The Yard Art Program
With a quarterly rotation of exhibitions, the Art Program is a core differentiator of The Yard. The program helps to ensure fresh, inspiring spaces, while supporting connections between members. Through our relationships with curators and galleries at each location, our members are surrounded by beautiful art every day and we are able to provide additional gallery space for the local creative community.
Each of our locations works with amazing local curators, galleries and our Head of Art Program, Michaeline Sander, to provide new and fresh contemporary art on a quarterly basis. Read more about our current and upcoming Rotating Exhibitions.
Opening or Closing Art Receptions are held for each new exhibition to invite The Yard members and the artist’s communities to join together to celebrate the wonderful works in the spaces.
The Yard Collection is an ever growing selection of some of our favorite pieces. While a few of the pieces were made site specific for the company, others were brought into the space through the rotating exhibitions. After seeing how perfectly these works fit in the space, The Yard had to acquire them! These acquisitions support local artists and curators that we work with, while bringing a unique flair to each location.
“Vectors Spectrum” (2016) is the third art commission for The yard by artist Vargas-Suarez Universal (b. 1972).
This multi panel painting is rooted in muralism, geometric abstraction and contains geometries associated with architecture, biology and mapping.
The artist’s intent is to create a panoramic painting using colors associated with traditional landscape painting, using pigments from Italy and Holland, as well as aluminum and oil enamels to create a network of “vectors” interconnecting the panels into a panorama of co-existence and harmony. The artist has suggested that this painting is a type of metaphor for the type of working and networking activities that occur at The Yard.
This piece is a permanent fixture in The Yard: Lincoln Square and part of the collection of the artist.
We’ll see you at The Yard soon!
