Williamsburg Art & Historical Center

Williamsburg Art & Historical Center

Art and history come together at the Williamsburg Art and Historical Center. The WAH Center offers an eclectic schedule of fine art exhibitions, music, dance and theatrical productions, poetry and stage readings and a broad range of cultural events and performing arts programs.

It is aptly located in Williamsburg, home to New York City’s largest community of artists. It is estimated that over 10,000 writers, artists, and performers live in this vibrant Brooklyn neighbourhood.

A Noble Mission

Founded by Yuko Nii October 1996, the WAH (which means “peace” in Japanese) strives to create a bridge between both established and upcoming artists and local, national and international artists. The works showcased by the WAH are by artists of all disciplines. The mission of the WAH is to use the international language of art to create a more unified world.

Historic Site

The WAH is located in a landmark building which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Once the Kings County Savings Bank, this beautiful French Second Empire masterpiece was built in 1867. It was the seventh building in New York City to receive landmark status. The WAH Center is committed to preserving and restoring this historically significant structure.
