The Neuberger Museum of Art is located in a Philip Johnson-designed building at the heart of Purchase College, State University of New York, in Purchase, NY.
Founded in 1969 with a promised gift of 300 works by Roy R. Neuberger—one of the greatest private collectors, philanthropists, and arts advocates of the twentieth century—the Museum's collection of modern, contemporary and African art has grown to over 6,000 objects by artists including Milton Avery, Romare Bearden, Willem de Kooning, Edward Hopper, Georgia O’Keeffe, and Jackson Pollock. Alongside the permanent collection, critically acclaimed special exhibitions feature the works of 20th-century masters, mid-career and emerging artists.
The museum's signature biannual award, the Roy R. Neuberger Prize, recognizes the work of exceptional contemporary artists, continuing its founding patron's dedication to supporting artists early in their careers.
Exhibition tours, lectures, films, and special events are offered throughout the year.
