Founded in 2013 by Katie Michel, Planthouse Gallery is a project space on 28th Street in New York City. Planthouse took its namesake from its original home on the storied block between Sixth and Seventh Avenues, representing the vibrant center of the city’s flower district. In 2015, the gallery moved nearby to 55 West 28th Street, trading in tulips and trees for the wholesale shops that now populate Tin Pan Alley, the strip between Fifth and Sixth Avenues, which historically housed the city’s music publishers in the early twentieth century. Planthouse is on the parlor floor of a brownstone dating back to this period, and we hope the (colorful) ghosts of the past will continue to inspire our future and our commitment to exhibiting and publishing the work of emerging and established artists.
The archive of Planthouse can be found at the Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library at Yale University.
