About House & Studio Tours

 

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 Gross's lifetime. The Foundation is a hidden treasure of New York City and is featured in the acclaimed guidebooks 111 Places in New York That You Must Not Miss (2015), 111 Museums in New York That You Must Not Miss (2018), Art Hiding in New York: An Illustrated Guide to to the City's Secret Masterpieces (2020), and Guide to Historic Artists' Homes & Studios (2020).
