Just twelve miles west of New York City, Montclair Art Museum is surrounded by the quaint, tree-lined streets of the town of Montclair, and is housed in its original 1914 building, which has been renovated and expanded three times since its opening. The museum is known for its American and Native American collections, exhibiting works by Edward Hopper, Georgia O’Keefe, and Roy Lichtenstein and traditional and contemporary Native American artists from the Northwest Coast, California, the Southwest, the Plains, the Woodlands, the Southeast, and the Arctic. The traditional works represent astounding artistic achievements in weaving, pottery, wood carving, jewelry, and textiles.
