Voted Best of Westchester thrice consecutively, Katonah Museum of Art earns praise while rotating about 10 to 12 exhibitions through its galleries each year. The main hall currently hosts New York, New York! The 20th Century, which is a celebration of paintings, photographs, and sculptures featuring the Big Apple’s most famous landmarks and bite marks. Following suit, the institution’s Learning Center houses Storied City: New York in Picture Book Art, which takes viewers on a magical journey through the streets via the illustrations in children’s books. Upcoming shows include the 29th annual Young Artists exhibit, trumpeting the area’s adolescent artistes (March 4–12), and Dragon Rises, a collection of Chinese documentarian photography from the past 10 years (March 25–September 2).
Free, docent-guided tours are available Tuesday–Sunday at 2:30 p.m., and the museum regularly orchestrates programs and events to enhance patrons’ appreciation for brushstrokes applied using a zebra’s tail. The Art Adventures After School program feeds the creativity of students ages 5–10, with discounted registration for members, and each installment in the CrossTalk lecture series opens with a wine reception before two experts discuss a topic in Pig Latin.
