ABOUT THE GALLERY:
The Riverfront Art Gallery is located on the 4th floor of the Riverfront Library, the main branch of the Yonkers Public Library. It opened in 2009.  The gallery exhibits contemporary, nationally and internationally acclaimed artwork. The mission of the gallery is to present a diverse and balanced schedule of exhibits of high caliber, progressive artwork and related programs not frequently seen in Yonkers and surrounding communities. The exhibit schedule is managed by a committee that is appointed by the library director.  Haifa Bint-Kadi is the curator for the gallery and head of this committee.
