The Montclair Art Museum (MAM)is a notable, community-based institution with an international reputation, boasting a renowned collection of American and Native American art. The Museum offers an extensive series of public programs. MAM's Yard School of Art is the leading regional art school, offering classes for children, youth, adults, seniors, and professional artists.
Two special exhibitions will be on view. “Georgia O’Keeffe in New Mexico: Architecture, Katsinam, and the Land” features 15 paintings and drawings of Katsina dolls (Katsinam, or representations of Hopi spirit beings) and over 30 paintings and works on paper of New Mexico landscapes and architecture by one of America’s most important and prominent modern artists. Additionally, “Saya Woolfalk: The Empathics” offers a multimedia exhibition of new work encompassing sculpture, installation, painting, performance, and video. The second in MAM’s New Directions series of contemporary art, the show also marks this young Brooklyn-based artist’s first solo museum exhibition.
