STEINBERG MUSEUM OF ART

Steinberg Museum of Art – Permanent Collection


On October 18, 2018 the Museum will inaugurate its 900 square foot Visible Storage Suite where guests may view the Collection. One of the unique features of the space, two glass enclosures, provides students, faculty, staff, scholars – and curious members of our community – unprecedented access to more than 4,000 objects from the Permanent Collection. Join us during regular museum hours to use the Visible Storage Suite.

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