Neuberger Museum of Art

Located at the heart of the Purchase College, SUNY campus, and established in 1974 with a core collection donated by collector, philanthropist, and arts advocate Roy R. Neuberger. The museum's permanent collection has grown to over 6,000 works of contemporary, modern, and African art.

The Neuberger Museum of Art is a center of teaching and learning for all stages of life.  Experience exhibitions of modern, contemporary and African art and art-inspired events in our galleries at the heart of Purchase College, State University of New York.

Founded in 1969 with a gift of more than 950 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 artists including Milton Avery, Romare Bearden, Willem de Kooning, Edward Hopper, Lee Krasner, Georgia O’Keeffe, Jackson Pollock and Faith Ringgold.

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.

Alongside our permanent collection, critically acclaimed special exhibitions draw local, regional, and international audiences to our galleries in Westchester County.

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.
