EXHIBITIONS 
Guided tour of  TOMASHI JACKSON: THE LAND CLAIM

Welcome Days provide the opportunity to experience this multi-part exhibition centering on the past and present experiences of communities of color. Throughout 2020, Jackson conducted in-depth interviews with members of Black, Latinx, and Indigenous communities on the East End to prepare for her new work in painting, sound, photography, and archival materials.

Visitors on Welcome Days are also invited to explore the following exhibitions at their own pace:

EVERYTHING THAT WASN’T WHITE: LONNIE HOLLEY AT THE ELAINE DE KOONING HOUSE

Completely self-taught, Lonnie Holley was born in Jim Crow-era Birmingham and discovered his path as an artist at age 29. The exhibition features 35 works: paintings on canvas and quilts; sculpture made largely of found objects, and mixed media works on paper.

ROY LICHTENSTEIN: HISTORY IN THE MAKING, 1948–1960

The first major museum exhibition to investigate the early work of the 20th century American artist, who became a founder of the Pop Art movement. It features 80 paintings, drawings, sculpture, and prints.

JOEL MEYEROWITZ AFTERMATH: IMAGES FROM 9/11

40 photographs that depict the physical devastation of the World Trade Center and serve as a backdrop for moments of courage, compassion, and solidarity

All museum visitors must wear a medical-grade mask at all times. Masks will be provided to anyone who needs one, free of charge. Learn more about our safety protocols here.
