Vagelos Education Center receives 2017 MASterworks Award

The Roy and Diana Vagelos Education Center has received the 2017 MASterworks Award for Best New Building from the Municipal Art Society of New York (MAS).

Founded in 1893, the Municipal Art Society is five years older than the consolidated City of New York itself. Today, MAS concentrates on three key campaigns: to protect New York’s legacy spaces, encourage intentional planning and urban development, and foster complete neighborhoods across the five boroughs. Founded in 1988, the MASterworks Awards pay tribute to some of the city’s most iconic buildings and local gems completed in the previous year.

The community is welcome to attend the award ceremony on Monday, May 15, at the Museo del Barrio.
