The Nassau County Museum of Art’s Saltzman Fine Art Building was the site of a women in business networking event recently—featuring none other than the county’s first woman county executive, Laura Curran.
“This is a true jewel in Nassau County,” said Curran, during her first visit to the museum as county executive. “Art plays a key role in Nassau’s economy and this museum is a major player in our artistic mission.”
Surrounded by the optical illusions of the Fool The Eye exhibition, guests toured the museum while networking and viewing artwork meant to mess with perception and any preconceived notions. Museum director Charles Riley said that such artwork—like life itself—needs to be viewed from different angles.
“There it is. There it isn’t,” said Riley. “The business world can work side-by-side with the art world—expanding our frame of reference and expanding our point of view.”
The Fool the Eye exhibition will be on display through March 4. The Nassau County Museum of Art is located at One Museum Drive, Roslyn Harbor, NY 11576. For more information, visit nassaumuseum.org or call 516-484-9338.
