Thank you for being part of our Socrates Sculpture Park community!

Once an abandoned landfill, it was transformed in 1986 by a coalition of artists and community members, under the leadership of renowned artist Mark di Suvero, into an open studio and exhibition space for artists. Today, Socrates is a premier outdoor site for art and culture, and the only New York City public park dedicated to supporting artists in the production and presentation of public art.

You know what makes Socrates unique and support from Park fans like you is at the heart of all the cultural programming, exhibitions, performances, arts education, and creative expression we offer to you and the more than 200,000 visitors who come through the Park each year.

Show your love and be a FAN (Friend and Neighbor) of Socrates Sculpture Park by making a small contribution each month. Your ongoing monthly gift will provide the reliable funding we need to keep our Park free and open 365 days of the year.

Thanks to generous donors like you, we are able to put on amazing events like our annual Halloween Harvest (complete with Pumpkin Catapult!) or this year’s artistic adventure Lotic Time. We have even more great things in store for you and our artists in 2024 – including opening our first-ever permanent building in the Park! We hope you will be there with us!
