backstory50: Happy and Happy

2024. A great year. Why? Because the Neuberger Museum of Art is celebrating its 50th anniversary!

Over the course of this year I’ll be bringing to you, through backstory50, stories about the Museum—its past, present, and future. We’ll also be featuring special anniversary exhibitions, programs, and events. There will be a lot for everybody. So stay tuned each Wednesday as we celebrate the Neuberger Museum of Art.

ArtsWestchester Today’s 50th anniversary thank-you goes to our partners at ArtsWestchester—with funding made possible by Westchester County government with the support of County Executive George Latimer—for being the first of our sponsors to support our exhibition year. Thanks, as always, for all that you do for us at ArtsW and for the arts in our community!
