Anderson Contemporary (art gallery) will soon join the new ‘hip’ frontier of New York’s Financial District when it opens its doors mid October. This waterfront downtown financial district, aka “FiDi”, has quickly gained much attention by its recent resurgence. Once considered a “ghost town”, over $30 billion has been spent rebuilding the area, creating an influx of development; including residential buildings, restaurants, high-end shops and hotels.
Ronni Anderson, founder of Anderson Contemporary, chose to branch out from traditional art districts, and carve a niche in FiDi culture by bringing Contemporary art to the trending area. The gallery will be located in the expansive lobby space of
180 Maiden Lane. Anderson Contemporary is proud to play a significant role in what has already been deemed as, one of the most talked about neighborhood comeback tales in New York City!
