National Academy Museum & School

Founded in 1825, the National Academy continues to serve its central mission of “promoting fine arts in America through instruction and exhibition.” Today, the National Academy Museum & School serves as the epicenter of that cause, showcasing American artists past and present through rotating exhibitions and ARTalks, which bring in experts to host discussions about art and architecture. The current exhibition "See it Loud: Seven Post-War American Painters," on view until January 26, 2014, explores the work of seven painters who insisted on the significance of landscape and figurative art at a time when abstraction commanded the American art world. Their absolute passion for painting, coupled with their willingness to create a unique synthesis between representation and abstraction, enlivened their art.

The Museum gives its timeless tableaus a worthy backdrop inside the original Huntington Mansion on Fifth Avenue, which it has called home since 1942. The two-floor space was renovated in 2011, but maintains its domestic charm by retaining some of the mansion’s original characteristics and gently rocking back and forth at night to lull the portraits to sleep.
