Few can boast a collection of contemporary art like that of Peter Brant. Fortunately for us, the entrepreneur and philanthropist is dedicated to promoting the education and appreciation of contemporary art and design, and as such, formed the foundation as a way to facilitate exhibitions and loans from his prestigious collection. The East Village space is located inside a century-old building that was home to artist Walter De Maria from the mid-1980s until his death in 2013. Renovated by architect Richard Gluckman, the former substation, a 16,000-square-foot building, now features 7,000 square feet of exhibition space spread across four floors and includes two new gardens adjacent to the structure and a landscaped roof terrace.
