Art Museum, located on the second floor of Hillwood Commons,
presents a year-round schedule of temporary exhibitions that cover
topics from antiquity to the cutting edge of contemporary art while
objects from the Permanent Collection may be seen year-round in the
Permanent Collection Gallery at the Museum. The 4500 square foot space
boasts a beautiful curved gallery which Phyllis Braff of The New York
Times has called "one of the Island's most dramatic showcases
for art" The Hillwood Art Museum was established in 1988 following
the use of the space as an art gallery since 1972. Hillwood Art Museum's
impressive and eclectic Permanent Collection consists of objects dating
from the earliest of man's endeavors in the creation of art to contemporary
art. An active, and well attended, Education Program incorporating
Family Day activities, the Tuesday Evening Lecture and Performance
Series, as well as extensive hands-on programs for Visiting Schools
from the surrounding community is the pride of the Museum's endeavors.
