Cornell Tech announced today (August 6) that it will open a space at Gallery RIVAA, 527 Main Street.
Starting September 3rd, Assistant Director of Government and Community Relations Jane Swanson, as well as other Cornell Tech staff, plan to be at the gallery on Wednesdays and Fridays, 10:00-12:00 and 1:00-4:00. They will discuss the Cornell Tech campus with visitors.
Cornell Tech will host an open house with light refreshments at the space throughout the day on Wednesday, September 10th.
According to a press release, "Through the gallery space, Cornell Tech plans to bring its vision, and its interplay of technology and creativity, to the wider community, as well as to share information about the progress of the academic programs and campus construction."
“As Cornell Tech’s campus on the south end of Roosevelt Island begins to take shape and we’re less than three years away from opening, I am thrilled that we will soon have a presence on Main Street,” said Jane Swanson, Assistant Director of Government and Community Relations at Cornell Tech.
"I am very excited to welcome Cornell Tech to the RIVAA gallery, and hope the Roosevelt Island community will come out to learn about the campus and see the other exciting works of art we have on exhibit,” said Tad Sudol, President of RIVAA.
