Artist Provides Major Gift to Fund NEU Acquisitions
International artist Basil Alkazzi has been making donations to museums around the world to support the acquisition of works by younger talented painters. In 2019, the Neuberger received major funding to be used exclusively for the purchase of paintings and drawings on paper by emerging American, British, and International artists for the Museum’s collection.

Volunteer Educators Donate Nearly 2,000 Hours
Before the Museum closed to the public in March, its committed volunteer educators were on track to donate the largest number of hours in recent years to the Neuberger’s docent program. In addition to their two-year training commitment, these volunteers audit art history classes, participate in monthly workshops, and lead at least two public tours each month. The value of their 1,865 volunteer hours is estimated to be nearly $47,500.
