2022 Menschel Exhibition

This annual exhibition presents works related to the Benjamin Menschel Fellowships granted to selected Cooper Union students to further work on projects related to art, architecture, design, and engineering. Program director Ninad Pandit notes, "This year’s Benjamin Menschel Fellowship projects continue our attempt to provide a space where artists, architects and engineers can collaborate on projects that further the mission of the Fellowship, and support and enhance the Cooper Union’s core values. Through collaborations and partnerships that are only possible at the Cooper Union, the six projects on display at the 41 Cooper Gallery engage with challenges in the world outside Cooper, whether in its immediate environs, or in distant parts of the country and world. "

  • Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in 1859, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.

  • “My feelings, my desires, my hopes, embrace humanity throughout the world,” Peter Cooper proclaimed in a speech in 1853. He looked forward to a time when, “knowledge shall cover the earth as waters cover the great deep.”

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
