Our normal House & Studio Tour schedule is paused until it is safe to resume. Please email our office if you have questions or concerns: info (at) rcgrossfoundation (dot) org.
The Foundation is open for guided one-hour House & Studio Tours on Wednesdays and Thursdays at 3 and 6 pm and Fridays and Saturdays at 1 and 3 pm. Admission is $15. Online reservations are requested through Eventbrite. Go here to reserve tickets. Tours are scheduled from the week after Labor Day through the end of June. The Foundation is closed for scheduled tours in July and August.
Tours explore three floors of the historic LaGuardia Place building, including Gross's first-floor sculpture studio and gallery, renovated in 1963 by the artist and later restored in 2017-18, as well as the Foundation's special exhibition space on the second floor. The third floor houses the Grosses' living and dining space featuring hundreds of works from their extensive private art collection, including important American paintings by Marsden Hartley, Willem De Kooning, Milton Avery, Jacob Lawrence, and others, installed by the artist with his African, Pre-Columbian, Oceanic, and decorative arts and preserved as it was during his lifetime.
