Recommendations
Notes from the website:
The Dorsky Museum's permanent collection comprises more than 6,000 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.
