About this site

Park Avenue Armory’s mission is to revitalize one of America’s historic treasures as a dynamic alternative arts space unlike any other in New York. Part palace, part industrial shed, the Armory is dedicated to the development and presentation of work in the visual and performing arts best realized in a non-traditional setting. With its Gilded Age interiors and soaring 55,000-square-foot Drill Hall, the Armory allows artists to create – and audiences to experience – epic, immersive and adventurous work that cannot be done anywhere else. The Armory seeks to stimulate the most ambitious and innovative work many artists will undertake in their career. Such has been its impact in its first five years that in December 2011 The New York Times noted “Park Avenue Armory…has arrived as the most important new cultural institution in New York City.”

The three witches from his dark tragedy Macbeth are currently stirring up a wicked potion in our exhibition The Power of Poison. What are they making? We overheard something about “tongue of dog” and "scale of dragon." So much for birthday cake!

Learn more about The Power of Poison.

Toil & trouble! We’ll have to venture across Central Park to the Museum of Natural History before Macbeth opens at the Armory.
