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.
