About Percent for Art: Since 1982, the Percent for Art program of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs has commissioned hundreds of site-specific projects in a variety of media—painting, new technologies, lighting, mosaic, glass, textiles, sculpture, and works that are integrated into infrastructure and architecture—by artists whose sensibilities reflect the diversity of New York City. Percent for Art seeks to commission works from the broadest range of artists from all backgrounds.

Central Library is accessible via wheelchair ramp at the main entrance. For further information on accessibility or to request accommodations, please contact our Disability Service Facilitator at or (212) 513-9376.
