About the Museum
The Katonah Museum of Art encourages the enjoyment, appreciation, and study of the visual arts by visitors of all ages. The Museum presents diverse exhibitions that explore ideas about art, culture, and society. We believe that art nurtures spiritually and intellectually, offering comfort and challenge, pleasure and provocation. Encounters with art can reveal insights into ourselves, our surroundings, and other people and cultures.
