FusionArts Museum, at 57 Stanton Street on Manhattan's Lower East Side is the only contemporary art space in New York City dedicated to the exhibition and archiving of fusion art. The museum is a not-for-profit gallery operated by Converging Arts Media Organization, a not-for-profit arts organization that promotes emerging American and international fusion artists.

About[edit]

The museum has been dedicated to promoting fusion art, which it believes to mirror life in the 21st century. Fusion art expands out from its roots in conventional art disciplines. The museum has succeeded in the changing and evolving neighborhood in which it is based.[1][2] Fusion art typically requires more work to display than does traditional art, which is why many galleries do not display fusion work.[3]

Founder[edit]

The museum was founded by Shalom Tomas Neuman (July 27, 1947 – ), a Czech-born American multimedia artist. His family emigrated to Israel when he was a young child, then to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania when he was 12.[1] Neuman has taught at a number of universities in New York City including Cooper Union, Parsons School of Design, and the Pratt Institute, where he is currently a lecturer.[3] He continues to exhibit his work at his own museum.[1]
