Design Arts

Design is everywhere: from the Montauk lighthouse to Buffalo’s Olmsted parks, from Manhattan’s skyscrapers to Adirondack camps, from Russel Wright tableware to Tiffany jewelry. At its best, design impacts our quality of life and serves the public good. This funding area encourages innovation and excellence in the design arts, the preservation and interpretation of New York State’s architectural + design heritage, and the development of design literacy for all New Yorkers.
