A Message from the Museum Director



Summer 2019

Summer is once again here at the Hofstra University Museum of Art, with a much quieter campus inviting you to visit our two exhibitions in our two galleries. Pushing Boundaries: American Art After World War II on view until August 16th in the Emily Lowe Gallery which presents a look at the diversity of styles and artists flourishing in the United States during the mid-20th century. You may be surprised by the art that pushed against convention and set the tone for art that followed.

While here, you can duck into the Joan and Donald E. Axinn Library (ninth floor) and visit the Filderman Gallery to view Inspiration: Japanese Woodblock Prints which will be on view through July 26th. While looking at the works, consider how art today, such as anime and manga, continues to be influenced by the art of Japan.

Summer means outdoor pleasures and what could be better than bringing your children to the campus to explore the outdoor sculpture with one of our Let’s Explore Backpacks, supported by the generosity of the Bethpage Federal Credit Union. Each backpack is filled with conversation starters, looking activities, and hands-on art making opportunities that connect to a backpack theme. Also for your family, pick up a copy of the Great Art Caper and search for the culprit of the campus mystery. If you prefer to be indoors, the Pushing Boundaries Art Quest is always available for you and your children. The family offerings are available weekdays during summer and are free to all families! Finish off your visit with a stop in one of the several eateries open on campus and leave feeling refreshed in mind, spirit and body.

Enjoy your summer - we hope you will spend a moment or two of it with us.

Nancy Richner
Director
