MOU Signed With Purchase College and Its Neuberger Museum



The College has entered into a special collaboration with Purchase College and its Neuberger Museum of Art to open an exhibition site.  The Neuberger Museum of Art, the tenth largest university museum in the United States, is home to internationally renowned collections of over 6,000 works of twentieth century American, European, African and Ancient art.
 
"This agreement demonstrates the positive potential of collaboration between SUNY campuses" said President Heath.  "The establishment of exhibition space will create a distinctive environment for the College of Optometry programs, while providing the Neuberger Museum and Purchase College with needed visibility in New York City.  The agreement also provides an opportunity for co-branding and increased public exposure for the College of Optometry including our eyecare facility, the University Optometric Center and Purchase College.
 
Mr. Thom Collins, Director of the Museum said the Museum's new satellite exhibition space will be renovated in coming months as part of an overall renovation project at the College.  "Our new location will make the Neuberger's outstanding collection, special touring exhibitions, and new artist projects even more accessible to thousands of New Yorkers.  This collaboration unfolds against a backddrop of dynamic institutional growth and change."
 
The exhibition space will be located on the ground floor of the College's historic building.
