Description:

An abstract canvas by Mark Rothko and a realist painting by Edward Hopper are among the 6,000-plus works of art in the prestigious permanent collection of the Neuberger Museum of Art, the place to go to see a snapshot of the best work of the twentieth century, says Director Thom Collins. In addition, the museum mounts changing exhibitions featuring such big names in the contemporary art world as Chuck Close, April Gornik and Jim Dine, as well as emerging artists like Michael Hayden and Sarah Trigg. Initiated in 1974 by financier and founding patron Roy R. Neuberger, the 78,000-square-foot museum (with 25,000 square feet of gallery space) was designed by world-renowned architect Philip Johnson and is situated in a brown brick building that blends seamlessly into the Purchase College campus.
