Specializing exclusively in architecture and design material, Christopher W. Mount Gallery opened to the public on May 23, 2014. Mount Gallery presents drawings, sketches, models, photographs, prints, and art experiments by prominent figures engaged in the design arts. The Gallery offers the public the opportunity to view and acquire work collected by eminent institutions internationally. Mr. Mount brings 30 years of experience in the field, including 14 years as a curator in the Department of Architecture and Design at MoMA, and as an editor, writer, historian, academic, and certified appraiser. The Gallery also provides curatorial services, sales counsel, and consulting in “legacy building” for architecture and design firms and related estate planning and assists in placement, general advisement, appraising, and cataloging of large collections and firm archives.
Bow Bridge promoted the opening of the Gallery and its inaugural exhibition, A Modern Master: Photographs by Balthazar Korab, securing coverage in national dailies and prominent art, design, and architecture outlets.
