Selections from the Archive
The Design Commission maintains extensive archives that document its work since it was founded in 1898. In 2013, the Commission launched a long-term preservation project to digitize the oldest and most fragile materials to increase public access and preserve the originals in appropriate archival conditions. The collection includes works by important artists and architects that shaped the city in the late 19th to early 20th Centuries and provides a unique view into the history of New York City's public works. Selections from the archives will be uploaded regularly to our Flickr site.
