Corridor Gallery (Clinton Hill, Brooklyn) is a core program of the Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation, a 501(c)3 organization founded in 1995 by brothers Russell, Danny and Joseph ?Rev. Run? Simmons. Corridor Gallery ? headed by Nina Ziefvert, Manager of Exhibition Programs ? is dedicated to providing exhibition opportunities to the emerging artistic community including artists, curators and writers primarily living and working in Brooklyn and the surrounding areas. Since its establishment in 1996, the gallery supports a unique constellation of artists and creative practices?experimental ventures in performance, visual art, and curatorial work and has exhibited the work of hundreds of non-commercially represented artists. The gallery serves the local community by hosting special events aimed at initiating a dialogue on matters relating to contemporary art. In addition, Corridor Gallery is also home to Rush Education Programs that exposes and immerses disadvantaged urban youth in the study and practice of contemporary art. The exhibitions and education programs of the galleries are sponsored in part by a grant from the New York State Council for the Arts and are free and open to the public. In 2008, the Gallery was awarded the Mayor?s Award for Arts and Culture from the department of Cultural Affairs for its pioneering programming.
