The Hebrew Home for the Aged at Riverdale is proud to possess a world-class art collection comprised of over 4,500 pieces including paintings, sculptures, drawings, photographs, and prints. The collection has grown through the generosity of donors, and includes work by such renowned artists as Pablo Picasso, Frank Stella, Andy Warhol, and Joan Mitchell. The concept behind the collection is that since it is hard for nursing home residents to visit museums, why not bring a museum to them.

Art is an integral part of the Hebrew Home and can be found throughout all the public spaces both indoors and outside. A rarity in New York City, the Hebrew Home has a large sculpture garden that overlooks the Hudson River and includes works by such sculptors as Herbert Ferber, Menashe Kadishman, Joel Perlman and Reuben Nakian.

In addition, the Hebrew Home mounts rotating exhibitions every six to eight weeks. These stimulating exhibits range from highlighting the work of a young painter to focusing on an artist whose work has resurfaced after fifty years to thematic and historical exhibitions.

Testimonial

“To me personally these are not artifacts. They are symbols…Especially around the holidays, I really miss my parents—these are symbols that tie me to my family.”

Hyman Martin, 86-year-old resident
