Herb Lubalin Gallery

The Lubalin Gallery

The Lubalin Gallery is associated with the Herb Lubalin Study Center for Design & Typography. Two large glass-fronted display cases in the gallery provide space for design work to be seen, and flat files house a portion of the Study Center's publicly accessible collection of design ephemera.

The Lubalin Gallery is often programmed with exhibitions in conjunction with the 41 Cooper Gallery, to which it is adjacent.

The Herb Lubalin Gallery is located in 41 Cooper Square, on Third Avenue between 6th and 7th Streets.

  • 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.
