The gallery is a super dynamic central space just off our 1st building entrance with the ability to be open or closed off from the lobby due to it’s reconfigurable walls. Throughout the year our Community Programs department oversees a wide variety of art installations in the gallery, which is open to the public when no events are reserved there.
Two walls within the gallery hold the work by the artist(s) and two walls of the gallery are made of glass panels, which facilities staff can move to provide a closed room or have it be an extension of the lobby. It is possible to have some, all, or no panels in place for your event (making it an expandable space if you also rent the lobby). The panels are to be moved by facilities staff only and must be arranged before the event. This is the least private of our event spaces, although (with panels and doors closed) can be quite insulated from sound in the lobby. The gallery has a concrete floor and white walls with a small skylight fed from the 2nd floor lobby and is completely reconfigurable. Please be aware that art exhibits may contain topics or imagery that some might be sensitive to.
It’s unique ability to feed audio to or from other rooms in the building makes this a great party breakout space from larger events in the Rainbow Room. See more information below regarding equipment options.
Due to its high visibility to the general public, alcohol cannot be served within line of site to the street.
