Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays thru Sept. 25th

Featured in the New York Times, LMCC's 2016 exhibition is dedicated to Michael Richards (1963-2001), showcasing a range of his work in sculpture and drawing, most of which has not been on public view for over 15 years. At the time of his passing on 9/11, Richards was an emerging artist whose incisive aesthetic—always provocative, at times playful, yet never without a critical bent—held immense promise to make him a leading figure in contemporary art. READ MORE
