You keep telling yourself you’re going to get to the Katonah Museum of Art, don’t you?
The Katonah Museum has ten to twelve exhibitions annually, not too bad for a museum without a permanent collection.
Currently and until September the museum is showing:
Rising Dragon: Contemporary Chinese Photography: a look at how rapidly the landscape and country are changing,
Xu Bing: Square Word Calligraphy : Xu Bing’s unique method of writing English words that resemble Chinese characters,
The Art of Grace Lin: a depiction of Chinese family life, and
Joseph Wheelwright: Tree Figures in the garden, giant sculptures from trees.
The museum is extremely kid friendly, has a children’s program to help them better understand the exhibitions, and a completely free interactive space called The Children’s Learning Center.
