At the beginning of every year, DAAD New York hosts a New Year’s Reception inviting alumni, grant holders, colleagues and friends to ring in the New Year.

The event centers on the exhibition of artworks by recent grant award winners. Guests are invited to mingle and enjoy the curated displays as well as meeting old friends and making new ones.

This year’s reception was held on January 12th and it was a special reception as we were fortunate to successfully combine it with the opening of our DAAD group art show. We are proud to feature works by four current DAAD grantees in 2017:

David Clay Diaz
Stephanie Gudra
Hanna Schaich
Maria Sturm

Those who were not able to attend the event may still enjoy the exhibition on the ground floor of the German Consulate at 871 UN Plaza, New York, NY 10017. The works will be shown until January 29th.  We are also including a few glimpses of the event in the picture gallery below.
