Steinberg Museum of Art is currently relocating to the lower level of the B. Davis Schwartz Library at LIU Post. We look forward to renovations beginning in April 2017 and will reopen in September 2017. Through March, Steinberg Museum of Art programming will take place in the Hutchins Gallery on the Lower Level of the Library.

Steinberg Museum of Art Museum is the caretaker of Long Island University's Permanent Art Collection. The University began acquiring work in the early 1970s and over the last three decades more than 650 new works have entered the collection through gifts and donations.

The Museum’s Permanent Collection, of nearly 5000 works, consists of objects from Ancient Mesopotamia, Greece, and Egypt as well as contemporary paintings, sculptures and photographs. Designed to support a liberal arts education the Collection is quite diverse, but has a focal center of non-western art including Pre-Columbian and African textiles and sculpture and Chinese paintings.

Current Exhibition

February 1 – 23, 2017

Earth From Space

Each day, high above the clouds, dozens of sophisticated imaging satellites circle the earth. These high-tech machines are capable of capturing extraordinary conditions and events that are nearly impossible to document from the surface of the planet. These remarkable images, which reveal the awesome beauty of the planet’s surface through the “eyes” of a space satellite, are on display in a new Smithsonian traveling exhibition.

Featuring 40 beautifully detailed satellite images of the planet from the swirling arms of a massive hurricane and the grid-like pattern of Kansas farmland to the triangular shadows cast by the Great Pyramids and the sinuous channels entering the Arctic Ocean, “Earth From Space” illustrates how satellite imagery is gathered and used to expand mankind’s understanding of life on Earth. It also explores the remote sensing technology used to gather the images and discusses the individual satellites whose images are on display.

“Earth from Space,” developed by the Center for Earth and Planetary Studies at the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum, in collaboration with the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES), Andrew Johnston, a geographer at the National Air and Space Museum’s Center for Earth and Planetary Studies and author of “Earth from Space” (Firefly Books, 2004), is the exhibition’s curator.
