A Message from the Museum Director



Welcome to the Hofstra University Museum of Art!

Admission to the Museum of Art is free and open to the public. We invite you to visit the Hofstra campus and explore the exhibitions on view in our two galleries:

Uncharted: American Abstraction in the Information Age will be on view from January 28th to June 19, 2020 in the Emily Lowe Gallery. Art, science, and technology have become increasingly intermingled. The distinctions between the disciplines are less clear, heading into unknown territory where all things are possible. The eight artists included in the exhibition, members of the American Abstract Artists organization, explore some of the unexpected ways that math, science, and technology are transforming our perception of the visual arts. Come in to see some of the exciting possibilities!

Other People’s Parties remains on view through March 13, 2020 in the David Filderman Gallery (located on the ninth floor of the Joan and Donald E. Axinn Library). Social gatherings are an integral part of human existence, as is the desire to preserve these moments and share them with others. These photographs from the Museum’s collection reveal the special importance is given to pictures of parties.

Opening March 31, 2020, Nevertheless She Persisted focuses on the challenges and contributions of women artists. The exhibition includes works of art from a range of artistic styles and media from the Museum’s collection. Artists include: Berenice Abbott, Diane Arbus, Dorothy Dehner, Miriam Schapiro, Lee Krasner, Jane Peterson, Howardena Pindell, and Bridget Riley, among others. The exhibition will be on view in the David Filderman Gallery through August 14, 2020.

The Hofstra University Museum of Art was founded, as the Emily Lowe Gallery, in 1963. Integral to the academic mission of Hofstra University, the Museum advances knowledge and understanding through experiences with authentic works of art. The Museum’s mission is based on the belief that the visual arts are an essential and vital part of our lives. Through compelling exhibitions, public programs, and educational initiatives, the Museum highlights the important role of the arts in teaching and learning across disciplines at the University and in the wider community.
