Untapped Cities Insiders are invited to tour the historic Greenwich Village home of sculptor Chaim Gross. On this guided tour of Gross’ 1830s townhouse, Insiders will visit the first-floor sculpture studio and gallery, renovated in 1963 by the artist and later restored in 2017-18, as well as the Gross Foundation’s special exhibition space on the second floor. Insiders will also gain access to the third floor living and dining spaces which are filled with hundreds of works from Gross’ extensive private art collection. Pieces featured in the Gross home include important American paintings by artists like Marsden Hartley, Willem De Kooning, and Milton Avery, as well as African, Oceanic, Pre-Columbian, and European works as well. Gross’ collection remains installed inside the townhouse just as it was when he lived there. All together, including Gross’ own sculptures, drawings, and prints,photographic archive and his personal art collection, there are 10,000 in the home.
The Chaim Gross home and studio is now run by the Renee and Chaim Gross Foundation, a not-for-profit organization established 1988. The Foundation opened to the public in 1994 and in 2009 has organized original exhibitions both onsite and at local and national venues on Chaim Gross and the history of American art, and allowed visitors into the Gross living spaces on the third floor. The Foundation also hosts public lectures and readings by major contemporary writers, poets and scholars.
