SUNDAY: Westchester Sketchers at the Neuberger Museum of Art, SUNY Purchase College

The Neuberger Museum of Art, located at the heart of SUNY Purchase College, is a vital cultural resource of modern, contemporary, and African art for Westchester County, NY, and beyond.  From the mid-century American and African art that form the collection's core to the presentation of contemporary art, the museum continues the commitment of founding patron Roy R. Neuberger (1903-2010) by championing the art of our time.


The drawing of the Green. That is what we will do for this St Patrick's Day sketch event. We pose a challenge, (optional, of course). See how many shades of green you can infuse your painting with. Or, do an all-green monochromatic sketch/painting. Come join us and have fun. 

Current exhibits include:

The Making of a Museum: 50 Years

For fifty years, the Neuberger Museum of Art has fostered learning, sparked the creative process, and investigated understandings of the world in which we live through its collections, exhibitions, and education programs. This exhibit commemorates the 50th anniversary of the museum's founding and features many of the works of art that form the core of the current collection. The show explores the role of Roy N. Neuberger as one of the most important collectors of his day, and the conception, design and construction of the museum. 

From Your Collection: Latin American, Caribbean, and Latinx Voices

This exhibition showcases the work of fifteen leading artists from across the Americas.   It features a selection of paintings, works on paper, photographs, and sculptures that have been donated to, or purchased by, the Neuberger Museum of Art over the last decade. Many of these works tie to global contemporary debates, while also referencing specific realities through a variety of voices in order to better understand the global nature of the world we live in, and explore the multiple voices at the base of fruitful contemporary debates that challenge it.
