The influx of artistic institutions moving into the Chelsea
neighborhood of New York City continues with the Michael Rosenfeld Gallery prepared
to make the leap. After showcasing groundbreaking oil painting work and other art pieces for the past 23 years
in their West 57th Street Midtown location, the Michael Rosenfeld Gallery will
be moving to a stunning new space in Chelsea by the end of this summer. The
neighborhood and surrounding areas have been the destination of choice for many
notable galleries in recent years, and The Whitney Museum of American Art is
even planning a move to the nearby Meatpacking District in 2015.

11th Avenue, New York, New York.
The Michael Rosenfeld Gallery purchased the ground floor of
a commercial condominium at 100 11th Avenue (at 19th Street), the iconic
residential tower designed by Pritzker Award winning architect Jean Nouvel. To
design the 6,500-square-foot space, Rosenfeld enlisted
the services of preeminent architect Richard Gluckman of Gluckman Mayner, and
construction is scheduled to be completed by the end of this summer.
"Our move to Chelsea is motivated in part by expanding
needs, including a more flexible exhibition space to accommodate large-scale
works that make up a significant portion of twentieth century art," said
gallery founder and co-owner Michael Rosenfeld. "Equally appealing is the
dynamic eclecticism of the Chelsea arts community. ... We have great confidence
in the Chelsea neighborhood; we wanted to make a long-term investment into the
community. Given the success of recent redevelopment projects like the High
Line Park and the promise of future projects, including the Whitney Museum of
American Art's move to the Meat Packing District, we are excited to be in the
heart of the art world."
