New York (January 3, 2018)—Neue Galerie New York is pleased to announce U.S. Trust, Bank of America Private Wealth Management as the Museum’s new sponsor of First Fridays. First Fridays is a longstanding program that provides free admission to visitors after regular gallery hours on the First Friday of every month. Beginning Friday, January 5, 2018, through the end of 2019, the museum’s galleries will remain open to the public from 6 to 9 p.m. on the first Friday of every month.
“We are delighted to announce U.S. Trust, Bank of America Private Wealth Management as the new sponsor of First Fridays,” said Neue Galerie director Renée Price. “With this generous commitment, the museum can now extend complimentary admission to the galleries for an additional three hours every month. First Fridays is a vital program that provides access to thousands of visitors each year beyond the museum’s regular daytime hours.”
Said Jennifer Lee, Market Executive for New York and Long Island, “U.S. Trust is proud to sponsor the Neue Galerie’s First Fridays project. Our support will enable the Museum to remain open for longer hours on the first Friday of every month. It’s a privilege to help make this beautiful museum more accessible to the public. It’s also a good strategic fit for U.S. Trust and Bank of America, where we’re dedicated to the mission of bringing the arts to the communities we serve. The Neue Galerie is an ideal partner for U.S. Trust.”
Neue Galerie New York is a museum devoted to early twentieth-century German and Austrian art and design, displayed on two exhibition floors. The collection features art from Vienna circa 1900, exploring the special relationship that existed between the fine arts (of Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Oskar Kokoschka, Richard Gerstl, and Alfred Kubin) and the decorative arts (created at the Wiener Werkstätte by such well-known figures as Josef Hoffmann, Koloman Moser, and Dagobert Peche, and by such celebrated architects as Adolf Loos, Joseph Urban, and Otto Wagner).
The German art collection represents various movements of the early twentieth century: the Blaue Reiter and its circle (Vasily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, August Macke, Franz Marc, Gabriele Münter); the Brücke (Erich Heckel, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Hermann Max Pechstein, Karl Schmidt-Rottluff); the Bauhaus (Lyonel Feininger, Paul Klee, László Moholy-Nagy, Oskar Schlemmer); the Neue Sachlichkeit (Otto Dix, George Grosz, Christian Schad); as well as applied arts from the German Werkbund (Peter Behrens) and the Bauhaus (Marianne Brandt, Marcel Breuer, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Wilhelm Wagenfeld).
The museum’s name (which means “new gallery”) has its historical roots in various European institutions, artists’ associations, and commercial galleries, foremost the Neue Galerie in Vienna, founded in 1923 by Otto Kallir. All sought to capture the innovative, modern spirit they discovered and pursued at the turn of the twentieth century. The institution thus reflects a dual commitment: an embrace of the city in which we are located and a focus on the culture upon which our exhibitions and collections are based. Two of the principal goals of the Neue Galerie New York are to bring a sense of perspective back to Germanic culture of this period, and to make the best of this work available to American and other audiences for both scholarly and aesthetic inquiry.
