Thanks to world-renowned pop and graffiti artist Kenny Scharf, visitors to the Nassau County Museum of Art will see vibrant works of art before they even enter the museum.
The museum’s new Manes Family & Education Center was brilliantly transformed by Scharf recently, as the artist emblazoned the exterior with lively colors and striking characters.

Over four days, on the ground and atop a fork-lift platform, Scharf used the stark white outer walls of The Manes Center as canvas for his iconic fanciful, vibrant pop renaissance images.

The Manes Family Art & Education Center at Nassau County Museum of Art provides a learning space committed to engaging members of our community in visual art experiences by providing a gateway to the creative process. This newly refurbished building offers a dynamic and inspiring environment in which audiences of all ages and abilities can find creative engagement through a variety of activities, projects, and talks.

With art on view, an art studio, a new media lab, a reading room, and outdoor classroom, children, families and adults will have the opportunity to enjoy programs that include traditional and contemporary forms of art processes and art education.

The center is located on the grounds of Nassau County Museum of Art, One Museum Dr. in Roslyn Harbor. It is the first building on the left after entering the grounds from Northern Boulevard.
