The Manes Center
The Manes Art and Education Center
The Manes Art & Education Center at the Nassau County Museum of Art provides a learning space committed to engaging members of our community in visual art experiences by providing a gateway to the creative process. Once the Millstone Lab for science and palentology studies for Childs Frick, this newly refurbished building offers a dynamic and inspiring environment in which audiences of all ages and abilities can find creative engagement through a variety of activities, projects, and talks. With art on view, two art studios, a reading room, and outdoor classroom, children, families and adults will have the opportunity to enjoy programs that include traditional and contemporary forms of art processes and art education. The Manes Center is located on the grounds of the Nassau County Museum of Art. It is the first building on the left after entering the Museum grounds from Northern Boulevard with a mural by artist Kenny Scharf
