An Abandoned School Becomes a Canvas for Art Galleries
Six galleries bought a 22-acre property in upstate New York that they are calling the Campus. Its first exhibition begins June 29.

In a spirit of cooperation, six midsize art galleries are extending their reach beyond Manhattan with the purchase of a sprawling abandoned school in Columbia County, NY, that will be inaugurated as a new exhibition platform called the Campus on June 29.

The galleries Bortolami, James Cohan, Kaufmann Repetto, Anton Kern, Andrew Kreps and Kurimanzutto pooled their resources to buy the low-slung 78,000-square-foot Ockawamick School and its surrounding 22 acres in Claverack.
