Walther Collection Project Space Set to Open in Chelsea

There will soon be yet another place to see art in Chelsea, and this one—the Walther Collection Project Space—is a nonprofit gallery that will show only about three exhibitions a year, according to Carol Vogel in the New York Times. Each show will be drawn from the holdings of the Walther Family Foundation, whose founder, Artur Walther, is a collector and retired Goldman Sachs partner.

Walther serves on the photography committees of museums like the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Vassar College Art Gallery, and is a board member of the International Center of Photography. His collection is focused primarily on the work of emerging artists from Africa and Asia.

The foundation’s New York space, on the seventh floor of the West Chelsea Arts Building, 526 West Twenty-sixth Street, will open on April 15. It is a small offshoot of the Walther Collection, a four-building campus in Neu-Ulm, Germany.
