Maria’s Tower—one floor set aside exclusively for those who choose Gotham House

Gotham House is for students who are interested in taking full advantage of living and learning in one of the most fast-moving, exciting, diverse cities in the world. Gotham House focuses on New York City as one of the cultural production capitals of the world. Artists, designers, writers, musicians, and performers strive to re-examine culture, question norms, and break down clichés. Gotham House is where creative-minded people meet, exchange ideas, problem solve and soak up as much of the NYC art scene as possible. We will attend exhibitions, performances, screenings and readings, as well as visiting artists in their studios, galleries, and workspaces. Gotham House projects include examining the role of art and local communities, art and politics (e.g., guerilla art, censorship and activism), sustainable and green design, as well as working together to create and present our own creative work on campus.
