Columbia University – Lenfest Center for the Arts

Add your name to our wait list!

The eight-floor, 60,000-square-foot Lenfest Center for the Arts is the second building to open at Columbia University’s new Manhattanville campus. Featuring multiple venues for Columbia University’s School of the Arts, the building includes the Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Art Gallery, a 150-seat film screening room; a flexible performance space, and presentation space for readings, symposia, and seminars. The building’s design contains sound and vibrations within venues and creates open floor plates for galleries – overcoming inherent challenges of constructing an urban arts center.
