David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center
The David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center is where arts and democracy converge—committed to the values of radical welcoming, artistic innovation, open exchange of ideas, audience and artist intimacy, and community partnership. Encompassing free performances, talks, family shows, opportunities for civic engagement, social events, and more, the Atrium’s programming opens our world to culture that addresses today’s most pressing issues, broadens our moral consciousness, and explores our common humanity. Weekly programming is as vibrant and diverse as the city we serve and like the people of New York City, artists at the Atrium come from around the world.
We believe in art’s ability to be a shining beacon of democratic values and an engine for social change, connection, and community building. We invite you to join us in this space.

Accessibility and Inclusion at the Atrium
The Atrium is a space dedicated to the convergence of arts and democracy—through radical welcoming, the open exchange of ideas, and artistic innovation. Our approach to accessibility mirrors our commitment to transform our performing arts spaces to be more inclusive of our audiences’ identities and access needs by design, not as an afterthought or add-on.
As part of Lincoln Center’s wider commitment to accessibility and inclusion, we recognize that access needs must be integrated in the creative process, that the work on our stages reflects our differences and interconnectedness, and that we are creating a space where everyone feels welcome. We know we have work to do.
