Judaica Museum + Art Collection
Derfner Judaica Museum + Art Collection
Founded with the mission of bringing art and culture into the lives of our residents who could no longer visit cultural institutions on their own, our Museum and Art Collection is unique in the universe of long term care organizations. The Art Collection continues to grow and be maintained through the generosity of donors.
Our permanent collection includes work by such renowned artists as Marc Chagall, Alex Katz, Robert Mangold, Joan Mitchell, Louise Nevelson, Pablo Picasso, Ben Shahn, and Andy Warhol. A rarity in New York City, the Hebrew Home at Riverdale has a sculpture garden that overlooks the magnificent Hudson River and Palisades. It includes works by such sculptors as Herbert Ferber, Menashe Kadishman, Reuben Nakian, Marsha Pels, and Joel Perlman, among others.
As a proud member of the American Alliance of Museums and the Bronx Arts Alliance, RiverSpring Health is proud to possess a world-class collection of thousands of sculptures, drawings, photographs, and prints, as well as decorative arts and objects from world cultures.
Our permanent and rotating exhibits may be enjoyed in both the Derfner Judaica Museum and throughout the indoor and outdoor spaces of the Hebrew Home at Riverdale.
