Currently a Museum without Walls

We are enjoying our offices and elegant Museum Gift Shop in the bustling lower Manhattan neighborhood of Hudson Square. This Website extends our mission of education in 19th-century academic art, informing our friends of exhibitions organized by the Museum and other collaborations, and will offer online resources that can expand the discussion about this period of art history.

A New Home Coming Soon

We look forward to welcoming you in our new home at 178 East 64th Street, soon after the Museum’s 22nd anniversary in January 2017. H3, the architecture New York-based firm of Hugh Hardy that was responsible for transforming our space at 580 Madison, will design the project. Hugh Hardy and his team aim to adapt this elegant 1899 townhouse into a public museum, providing easy access, intimate exhibition and program space, appropriate lighting, and a safe and controlled environment, while preserving the distinctive character and intimate scale of the building. Further updates will be posted on our website.
