Founded in 1969 with a promised gift of 300 works by Roy R. Neuberger—one of the greatest private collectors, philanthropists, and arts advocates of the twentieth century— the Museum’s collection has grown to over 6,000 objects by some of our best known artists including Milton Avery, Romare Bearden, Willem de Kooning, Edward Hopper, Georgia O’Keeffe, and Jackson Pollock.

Our signature biannual award, the Roy R. Neuberger Prize, recognizes the work of exceptional contemporary artists, continuing our founding patron’s dedication to supporting artists early in their careers.

Today, the Neuberger is more active and vibrant than ever. Critically acclaimed exhibitions draw local, regional, and international audiences at both our Westchester location as well as our New York City location, NEU SPACE l 42.
A wealth of tours, lectures, and programs engage our broad and diverse community.  On any day, you can see adults, families, K-12 school children and their teachers, and Purchase College students, faculty and staff enjoying the museum.

At the Neuberger, appreciating art is active and interactive.  Here, students, scholars, artists, and art lovers find common ground to experiment, question, and grow.
