HOURS: Tuesday – Friday, 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday, noon-4 p.m.
In the aftermath of World War II, American artists, working both figuratively and non-objectively, continued explorations begun earlier in the 20th century and pushed the boundaries of accepted subject matter and traditional artistic forms. Drawn from the Museum’s collection, works by Lee Krasner, Joan Mitchell, Robert Motherwell, Robert Rauschenberg, Ad Reinhardt, Stanley Twardowicz, and Andy Warhol are included. Additionally, a selection of paintings by artist/poet and Holocaust survivor Yonia Fain will be highlighted.
Funding has been provided by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
