This is exciting! Off to the Neuberger Museum in Purchase, New York. America’s tenth largest university affiliated art museum!

Neuberger Museum sign
Purchase is just down the street (more like a few streets but only ten minutes) from Greenwich.  The Neuberger is on the campus of Purchase College, part of the State University of New York system of higher education.  The college is focused exclusively on the arts, and the Neuberger is a wonderful place to find some very interesting works of art—paintings, drawings, photographs, prints, videos, and sculpture.  The museum began in 1974 with a gift by Roy R. Neuberger of 108 works of art.  The permanent collection now includes over 6000 works, featuring modern, contemporary and African art.  They also host special exhibits and offer educational programs.
The museum is now hosting two amazing exhibits by Leandro Erlich and Fred Wilson.  To give them the respect they deserve, I will be creating a blogpost for each in the next few days.  I hope you enjoy!!  After these posts, I will be taking a “blogrest” but will be back after that to comment on the Neuberger’s permanent collection and hopefully a new exhibit as well.
You can access the museum by car by entering the university entrance at 735 Anderson Hill Road and then park in Lot W1.  The museum is open from Tuesday to Sunday, 12:00-5:00 and Wednesday 12:00 until 8 PM.  For other information, please go to their Website: https://www.neuberger.org.

    1. I think so. It is a big space and the artwork can seem lost. But, if you live nearby, why not? The special exhibits are worth a trip. If you go on the weekend, you can visit Pepsico across the street. I have heard they have a nice exhibit space. Let me know what you think if you go.
