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
