Apples, Pears, and Paint: How to Make a Still Life Painting

This richly detailed film journeys through the epic history of still life painting, from the earliest existing mural paintings discovered at Pompeii to the cubist masterpieces by Picasso. Awash with rich imagery of fruits and flowers as well as humble domestic objects, this lively take on the story of still life encompasses the work of some of the genre’s greatest artists.  Free with Museum admission; reservations not needed; first come, first seated.


Neiman Marcus Family Sundays at the Museum

Converse, collaborate and create from 1 to 4 p.m. at Neiman Marcus Family Sundays at the Museum. Each week be inspired by the works and conversations in the galleries and explore new art materials. Family Sundays allow children and the adults in their lives to take time to reconnect while talking about and making art together. Art projects will be inspired by the works of the current exhibition, A Feast for the Eyes, which explores how artists have used food and dining in their art. New projects are featured every week.

Sight and Feeling: Photographs by Ansel Adams

Ansel Adams’ ability to create photographs with a remarkable range and subtlety of tones is legendary. Yet for all his technical mastery, Adams recognized that what made a compelling photograph was far more elusive. This exhibition of Adams’ photographs, from the collection of the Kalamazoo Institute of the Arts, Kalamazoo, Michigan, suggests how his intuitive and emotional response to the landscape resulted in powerful and enduring photographs.


November 19, 2016 – March 5, 2017

LIGHT WORKS: A Century of Photography

From Eadweard Muybridge’s 19th-century photographic studies of animal locomotion to Richard Misrach’s contemporary chromogenic prints, this exhibition spans the history of photography.

Long Island Collects: Photography

Long Island Collects: Photography seeks to focus on significant photographic works created from the 1960s through the present day. Historically, photography has been used as a documentary medium to tell a story. Using the malleable medium of the photographer, artists have often enhanced or staged their works to convey a story, create emotion, or otherwise touch the viewer in a significant manner. This exhibition presents a survey of photographic works from private collectors. Among the artists included in Long Island Collects: Photography are John Baldessari, Matthew Barney, Robert Mapplethorpe, Vic Muniz, Cindy Sherman and William Wegman, among many others.
