About the Yaseen Lectures on the Fine Arts
Every two years the Yaseen Lectures on the Fine Arts brings acclaimed scholars and artists to the Neuberger Museum of Art and Purchase College to discuss their work and address contemporary ideas and issues. Since the biennial lecture series began in 1974, featured speakers have included Claes Oldenburg, Maya Angelou, Faith Ringgold, Chuck Close, John Shearer, and Purchase College alumnus Fred Wilson. The lectures are endowed by a gift from the late Leonard C. Yaseen and his wife Helen, former residents of Larchmont, New York; who financed a similar series at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
