About the KMA

About the Katonah Museum of Art

Accredited by the American Alliance of Museums, the Katonah Museum of Art originates three to four exhibitions annually, covering a broad range of art and humanities topics. From the beginning, the KMA was committed to presenting exceptional art from all cultures and time periods. The founders’ decision to be a non-collecting institution resulted in a dynamic and flexible exhibition program, which remains one of the most distinctive features of the KMA. The KMA offers lectures, films, workshops, concerts and other events for a general audience; and presents innovative and substantive programs for over 100 member schools. Our Learning Center is the only interactive space in Westchester County where children can come on a daily basis to explore and create art. Our outreach programs for the local Hispanic immigrant population are at the forefront of community-based education programs. The KMA works intensively with schools and service organizations to develop literacy and assimilation skills among this population.

   The Katonah Museum of Art’s online public programming has been made possible in part by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities: Exploring the human endeavor.
The Katonah Museum of Art is proud to be a grantee of ArtsWestchester with funding made possible by Westchester County government with the support of County Executive George Latimer.
The Katonah Museum of Art’s programs are made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.

Our Mission Statement The Katonah Museum of Art promotes the understanding and enjoyment of the visual arts for diverse audiences. The Museum presents exhibitions that explore ideas about art, culture, and society – past and present – through innovative exhibition and education programs.

Land AcknowledgementWe respectfully acknowledge that the Katonah Museum of Art sits on the traditional homeland of Indigenous peoples, including the Ramapoo/Ramapough Tribal Nation, who stewarded this territory. We recognize the involuntary displacement of these Indigenous peoples. We commit to increasing awareness of the legacies of dispossession while actively working to recognize and correct present and future practices that perpetuate the erasure of history. We thank Indigenous elders for honoring this land, and we acknowledge our responsibility to follow their example.

We present this as a living land acknowledgement that we will continue to revise and strengthen in collaboration with community members.

What is a Land Acknowledgment?
A land acknowledgement is a formal statement, a public recognition, of the Indigenous Peoples who have been dispossessed and displaced from their ancestral homelands and territories due to a variety of colonial and historical reasons. It recognizes and respects Indigenous Peoples as traditional stewards of the land and the enduring relationship that exists between Indigenous Peoples and their traditional territories.

For the KMA, acknowledgment is a simple, powerful way of showing respect and a step toward correcting the stories and practices that erase Indigenous people’s history and culture and toward inviting and honoring the truth while inspiring ongoing awareness and action. Acknowledgment is a necessary step toward honoring Native communities.
