Studio + Gallery

Studio Gallery


The Freshkills Park Studio + Gallery on Richmond Avenue began exhibiting work in early 2018. The space is open on select days for programs and viewing hours. The art and cultural programs offered aim to promote understanding of and access to the landfill-to-park transformation; develop innovative strategies in ecological restoration; and incite socio-environmental change through education and demonstration.
