ABOUT THE SAMUEL DORSKY MUSEUM OF ART

STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK NEW PALTZ

Through its collections, exhibitions, and public programs, The Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art supports and enriches the academic programs at the university, presents a broad range of national and international art for study and enjoyment, and serves as a center for the arts and culture of the Hudson Valley.

Located at the State University of New York at New Paltz, The Dorsky Museum comprises more than 9,000 square feet of exhibition space distributed over six galleries. The museum was launched more than 65 years ago by a dedicated committee of faculty members to enhance the teaching mission of the university. Originally known as the College Art Gallery, The Dorsky Museum was dedicated in 2001. The opening of The Dorsky Museum transformed the original College Art Gallery into one of the leading art museums in the region.

The Dorsky Museum's permanent collection comprises more than 5,500 works of art from around the world and spans over a 4,000 year time period. While encyclopedic in nature, areas of focus include American art, with an emphasis on the Hudson Valley and Catskill Mountain region, 19th century American prints, photography and contemporary metals. The museum also has a strong World Collection that includes outstanding examples of both two and three-dimensional objects from diverse cultures, dating from classical to modern times.

The museum's temporary exhibition program has been hailed as one of the best in the region, and features exhibitions, installations, and projects by internationally recognized artists as well as annual thematic exhibitions of work by regional artists. "The Hudson Valley Masters Series" is one of the unique exhibitions that the museum periodically hosts which focuses specifically on a body of work by an internationally acclaimed artist who resides in the area.
