Senator Jack Martins announced that he has secured $10,000 in state funding for the Nassau County Museum of Art in Roslyn Harbor. “We thank Senator Martins for providing important state funding to support the Nassau County Museum of Art,” said Angela Susan Anton, president of the museum’s board of trustees. “Our fantastic hands-on educational programs allow students and families across Long Island to learn about the arts by experiencing them.”

The funding will be used to support the museum’s educational programs.

“The museum is very grateful to Senator Martins for delivering this grant funding,” said Dr. Karl E. Willers, director of the museum. “Our educational programs serve over 20,000 students from kindergarten through college and beyond; this grant will go to support these extremely beneficial services that inspire a lifelong appreciation and understanding of visual arts and culture.”

Family Sundays2Housed in the heart of one of Long Island’s famous Gold Coast properties, the Nassau County Museum of Art is ranked as one of the largest and most important suburban art museums in the country. It offers programming and interactive experiences to the general public and works with over 100 schools, universities, and community groups in Nassau and Suffolk counties to provide programming which helps students develop their skills and enrich their understanding and appreciation for the arts. The museum also offers programs for children with autism spectrum disorders and adults with early onset Alzheimer’s disease.

“Using interactive programs, the Nassau County Museum of Art is able to help people of all ages and abilities learn about the arts and explore their artistic talents. This funding will help support these valuable educational programs,” said Martins.
