In celebration of its 25th anniversary, Nassau County Museum of Art is presenting Out of the Vault: 25 Years of Collecting, its first comprehensive exhibition of works from the permanent collection. This presentation highlights patrons’ numerous gifts to the Museum over the last quarter century that have never, or rarely, been exhibited. Each gallery space within this multifaceted presentation will focus on different themes such as past and present portraiture, great traditions in paintings, post-war prints and vintage posters of many eras. Exploring a diverse range of artists that are strongly represented in the Museum’s collections, this exhibit includes works by naturalist John James Audubon, photographer Larry Fink, as well as Pop Art icons Marisol Escobar, Robert Indiana and Larry Rivers, among others.
