Established in 2003, The Kimmel Windows are an exhibition space that consists of 13 ground floor vitrines located along LaGuardia Place and West 3rd Street. Just south of iconic Washington Square Park in the heart of Greenwich Village, these highly-visible vitrines offer the opportunity for NYU to present diverse and interesting exhibitions, with the goal of cultivating engagement within our academic community and the surrounding neighborhoods.
Conceived of as a public art and exhibition space intended to inspire dialogue with the community, the Windows were incorporated into Kimmel’s architectural plans prior to construction for the unique purpose of providing passersby with visually dynamic and thought-provoking exhibitions that are free, accessible and able to be viewed by anyone at all hours of the day and night.
