Yes! I want to contribute to the Nassau County Museum of Art
and invest in the future of my entire community!

     Other: $

Since 1989 Nassau County Museum of Art has presented world-class exhibitions and stellar public and educational programming to Long Island communities.  We need your support to continue this tradition of excellence!

Your contributions support programming for children, exhibitions and family-related events. Please support your Museum and know that every dollar is an investment in the future of your community.

Here are just a few of the many wonderful reasons to contribute to the Nassau County Museum of Art:

  • Named one of the top ten museums in the New York Metropolitan area by Newsday
  • Named Long Island's Best Museum by LI Press
  • Named one of 12 of the most extraordinary Museums in New York State by Former Governor Pataki
  • Over 200,000 visitors attend the Museum every year - a figure that grows exponentially
  • More than 20,000 students participate in Museum Education Programs throughout the school year
  • Outreach programs are provided to local public libraries, senior centers, assisted living facilities, universities and hospitals.
  • The Museum is completely handicap accessible with a new outdoor ramp and elevator in the main building.
  • Fun indoors and out, the Museum features an Outdoor Sculpture Garden - the largest in the northeast - with works by Fernando Botero, Chaim Gross, Richard Serra, Mark di Suvero, Tom Otterness and many others. We are continually adding to the outstanding collection thanks to purchases made by the Museums own Contemporary Collectors Circle and the generous long term loans of patrons and galleries.
  • Natural Landscape is something that makes the Museum such a special place. There is plenty to experience on the 145 acre property. Visit the Formal Gardens, originally designed by Marian Cruger Coffin and restored to their original splendor. Walk any one of the nine Nature Trails or explore the historic Pinetum which boasts many spectacular trees including two Sequoias - the largest of their kind on the east coast!

Past Events



Masquerade in the Garden was a party as elegant as the lavish outdoor parties and scenes depicted in some of the works of our exhibition, Garden Party, the thematic inspiration of the 2014 Museum Ball. In keeping with the theme, guests donned gorgeous feathered, flowered and spangled masks as they wandered the grounds and pavilions where the Ball was held. This beautiful black-tie evening also launched the celebration of the Museum’s 25th year of serving the communities of Long Island and beyond.

Among the many highlights of Masquerade in the Garden were dining and dancing to the music of The Alex Donner Orchestra, a congratulatory proclamation presented by Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano, a silent auction for a wide array of prizes including artwork, trips, jewelry, fine dining and unique event experiences, and, for one lucky winner, a raffle for a magnificent diamond ring donated by Ambalu Jewelers.

The Ball is the Museum's major annual fundraiser. Always a highlight of the North Shore social calendar, the Ball provides an important component of the Museum’s operating budget, offering support for an ambitious schedule of exhibitions and stimulating educational programs for adults, students, families and school groups.
