The Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts

The Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts

. Through changing exhibitions, programs, collaborations and exchanges with other cultural and educational institutions, the Pulitzer is a resource for artists, architects, scholars, students and the general public.


The Pulitzer, designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Tadao Ando, opened in October 2001. Commissioned for the building and on permanent view are Ellsworth Kelly's wall sculpture "Blue Black", located in the Main Gallery, and Richard Serra’s torqued spiral sculpture "Joe", located in the courtyard.


Exhibitions at the Pulitzer rotate approximately every six months. Each strongly relates the art to the architecture, instead of emphasizing an art historical narration or presenting works from a specific collection. A personal experience with the artwork is a key aspect of the visit, therefore there are no labels to detract from an immediate aesthetic experience. For further information on the works, free brochures are provided at the front desk. Additionally, the Pulitzer’s website features online catalogues, which provide expansive information about each exhibition at the Pulitzer and allows visitors to interactively explore the galleries.

Concert programs are chosen based on their relationship to the artworks exhibited.
