Neuberger Museum of Art
Art at the heart of Purchase College.
The Neuberger Museum of Art is the premier museum of modern, African, and contemporary art in the Westchester and Fairfield County area. Conceived as an integral part of the college and surrounding community, it now serves as an important cultural resource to its regional, national, and international audiences.
The museum was the first building to open on the campus; its core collection was donated by Roy R. Neuberger, one of the twentieth century’s most important private art collectors, philanthropists, and arts advocates. The permanent collection now encompasses more than 7,000 pieces, including key works by Milton Avery, Romare Bearden, Willem de Kooning, Edward Hopper, Georgia O’Keeffe, and Jackson Pollock. Critically acclaimed exhibitions, regularly accompanied by catalogues, draw additional audiences throughout the year. The Museum’s signature Roy R. Neuberger Exhibition Prize recognizes the work of exceptional young artists, and our dedication to supporting those in the early stages of their careers.
As a teaching museum, the Neuberger fosters the interaction of Purchase College students, faculty, and staff with these exhibiting artists and visiting curators through coursework, studio visits, and special projects. Exhibition tours, artist lectures, workshops, readings, family festivals, and other events amplify learning opportunities for our broad and diverse community of art enthusiasts.
Through the generous support of our members, the Friends of the Neuberger Museum and its Board of Directors, the museum has a solid operational base.
Private contributions will assure the continued growth of the collections and enhance our exhibitions and education programs by bringing artists and curators to campus.
