SculptureCenter is located in a former trolley repair shop in Long Island City and the renovation was completed in October 2014. The project created a larger, more accessible facility including a new 2,000 square foot, one-story entrance lobby with bookshop, coatroom, seating area, and restrooms; an elevator and stairway to the lower level galleries; a 1,500 square foot enclosed courtyard for outdoor exhibitions and events; upgrades to electrical and mechanical systems; and office and storage space improvements.
