New York, New York

From its earliest years, New York City was the stage on which the transformation of America played out, reflecting economic and historic upheavals that led to the city’s place as the financial and art capital of the world. This exhibition, guest curated by Director Emerita Constance Schwartz, portrays the city’s grit and glamour, its excitement and bustle, the heartbeat of a great metropolis, through more than 140 works by artists such as John Sloan, Reginald Marsh, Childe Hassam, Red Grooms, Robert Henri, Fairfield Porter, Berenice Abbott, Milton Avery and Georgia O’Keeffe among many others.

Fool the Eye

Is it a flat surface or is it a sculpture. Is it a photo or is it a painting? Is it wood or is it bronze? Is it rubber or is it steel? Perceptual tricks, optical illusions, a thousand playing cards combined suggest a face. Take a few steps to the right, the image changes; a few steps to the left, maybe another change.

What’s real and what isn’t? A photo starts to look like a painting, a collage like a photo. The real and the unreal become mixed together. All this and more is present in Fool the Eye, a study of how artists use the magic of perceptual illusion to fool viewers into thinking they’re seeing something that’s not there. Expect fascination, intrigue, shock, and astonishment. Fool the Eye is curated by Franklin Hill Perrell, organizer of many past exhibitions at the Museum, including most recently Feast for the Eyes (July 2016), The Moderns: Long Island Collects (July 2015) and Garden Party (March 2014).




Sculpture Park

Approximately 30 works, many of them monumental in size, by renowned artists including Fernando Botero, Tom Otterness, George Rickey and Mark DiSuvero among others, are situated to interact
with nature on the museum’s magnificent 145-acre property.

Walking Trails

The museum’s 145 acres include many marked nature trails through the woods, perfect for family hikes or independent exploration.
