Organization Overview

THINK NEU Neuberger Museum of Art is Westchester County’s premier museum of modern, contemporary, and African art and an integral part of Purchase College. From the mid-century American art and African art that form the core of the collection to the presentation of about ten changing exhibitions each year that range from retrospectives of the work of one artist to thematic surveys of contemporary art to newly-commissioned artist projects, we continue the commitment of founding patron Roy R. Neuberger (1903-2010) by championing the art of our time. A teaching museum, the Neuberger actively promotes cultural and educational opportunities for the community with special attention to reaching out to the culturally and ethnically diverse population of Westchester County and to targeting new audiences. A wide array of public programs for the general public include Art Sandwiched-In lunchtime art talks; artist lectures; panel discussions; and interdisciplinary exhibition celebrations. For families we present Family First Saturdays, free events the first Saturday of most months that feature tours, art workshops and performances. Area K-12 students find curriculum enhancement on school tours and through multi-visit programs such as the Museum/School Program and Writing Through the Arts. College students create and present First Wednesdays during the school year, which offer unique and dynamic interaction with exhibitions and are open to the public. OPEN: Tue-Sun, 12-5 pm Closed Mondays and major holidays; first Saturday of each month free.
