Kenneth C. Griffin Sidewalk Studio


The Kenneth C. Griffin Sidewalk Studio is an innovative venue for small-scale performances, rehearsals, and community gatherings, including: concerts, talks, readings, film screenings, and educational activities. Prominently located inside David Geffen Hall on the corner of Columbus Avenue and 65th Street, the Griffin Sidewalk Studio was intentionally designed to be accessible and visible to outside passersby—providing an open door into the creative process and artistry at Lincoln Center.
