  SELECTIONS FROM THE PERMANENT COLLECTION OF THE NEUBERGER MUSEUM OF ART
 
Initiated in 1974 with Roy R. Neuberger's donation of 108 works of art, the permanent collection of the Neuberger Museum of Art has grown to over 6000 works of uncompromised quality and variety. Featuring prestigious examples of modern, contemporary and African art, holdings include: the Roy R. Neuberger Collection; the Aimee W. Hirshberg and the Lawrence Gussman Collections of African Art; the Hans Richter bequest of Dada and Surrealist objects; the George and Edith Rickey Collection of Constructivist art; American, Mexican and European master works from the collection of the late Dina and Alexander Racolin; and the Luis Calzadilla Collection of Contemporary Latin American Art. Beginning with this summer, the collection galleries will be refreshed often with curated installations that will offer audiences the opportunity to learn from its diversity.
 
Generous support for the Neuberger Museum of Art of Purchase College, SUNY’s ongoing Selections from the Permanent Collection is provided by the Friends of the Neuberger Museum of Art.

 THE POWER OF BRONZE:
ROYAL SCULPTURE FROM THE KINGDOM OF BENIN

November 21, 2004 - February 13, 2005
Cast in copper alloys, the works in this exhibition were made between the sixteenth and eighteenth centuries and represent emblems of leadership, regalia, life at the court, and commemorative heads.  The visually provocative ensemble demonstrates the astonishing achievements of Benin brass casting created primarily for the royal ancestral altars.  The inclusion of two additional bronzes from Ife, the sacred city of the Yoruba people, and the Yoruba, will raise the question of relationship between these three artistic traditions.
