About the Riverfront Art Gallery

 
The Riverfront Art Gallery is located on the 4th floor of the Riverfront Library, the main branch of the Yonkers Public Library (3D model of gallery).  The gallery exhibits contemporary, nationally and internationally acclaimed artwork. We also strive to promote the work of local artists. 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.  Haifa Bint-Kadi is the curator for the gallery and schedules exhibits generally one year in advance. To contact the curator, email: haifa@ypl.org

Current Shows:

Memento Mori
Riverfront Library:  May 5 – July 21, 2022
Opening Reception: Thursday, May 5, 5:30-7:30 pm

“Memento Mori,” is a Latin term meaning to remember that death is a part of life. Our current exhibit seeks to explore the inevitability of death and its impact on all of us. Throughout the pandemic, we’ve needed to let go of old ways of thinking and being in the world, to adopt new ways of living. Death, in all its forms, can be an opportunity to adapt, to appreciate, to honor and value the lives we are currently living. Death can be a door, a light shining upon more healthy ways of being present in the world. Death reminds us that each moment of life is sacred.

Please note this program is in person and is part of First Thursday Gallery Hop.
