Pulitzer Arts Foundation

Opened in 2001, the Pulitzer has grown into an institution with an international reputation. Through changing exhibitions, world-renowned architecture by Tadao Ando and innovative programming, the Pulitzer serves as a place of both experimentation and reflection for artists, scholars, students and the general public. Each exhibition at the Pulitzer strongly relates the art to the architecture, instead of emphasizing an art historical narration or presenting works from a specific collection. A personal experience with the artwork is a key aspect of the visit; therefore there are no labels to detract from an immediate aesthetic experience. The Pulitzer is free and open on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
