Art By Architects (AbA) is a New York City-based organization that supports and celebrates fine artwork by architects.

Each year AbA holds an exhibit and reception, with diverse works from local architects for display and sale. It’s an opportunity to share work, find inspiration, and forge a community among fellow artists and architects.

Art by Architects held its second annual exhibit in New York City, at the Church of the Heavenly Rest, on 09/12/19.

The show featured original paintings, drawings and sculptures by 48 local architects. It was a great success, with a large, energetic crowd.

A portion of proceeds was donated to support AIA New York scholarships for local architecture students. And a copy of Single-Handedly was raffled.

The event was supported by Perkins Eastman and AIA New York City, and sponsored by Blick Art Materials.
