The Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art is an art museum in Staten Island, New York. It was founded in 1977 inside the architecturally significant Greek Revival buildings of Sailors Snug Harbor.

Although the Newhouse was founded with a focus is on artists who live or have their studios in Staten Island[1] and art that reflects the history of Staten Island or Snug Harbor,[2] the Newhouse moved on to a broader focus on contemporary art. Unlike many New York museums, the Newhouse has the space to mount large shows and large works, and can add outdoor sculpture to the mix.[3][4]
