Midnight in Paris, the 2015 Museum Ball, continued the celebration of the Museum's 25th year by honoring the Hon. Thomas S. Gulotta and the Hon. Edward P. Mangano, Nassau County Executives at the Museum’s founding and today. Through décor, French-inspired cuisine and costume, Midnight in Paris evoked the glamour and romance of the fabled city of lights. The 2015 Ball was chaired by Museum Board President Angela Susan Anton, the publisher and owner of Anton Community Publications. The Journal Committee was chaired by Rebecca Creavin and M. Patricia Janco-Tupper, both of Wells Fargo Bank. Congratulations to our chairs, committee members and sponsors for a beautiful and successful Ball.

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!
