"The Museum Association of New York is grateful to the New York State Black, Puerto Rican, Hispanic, and Asian Legislative Caucus for including the New York 250 Commission in The People’s Budget," said Erika Sanger, MANY Executive Director. "We deeply appreciate the caucus members' support of New York’s history, art, and cultural organizations and the multitude of ways in which they will produce commemorative activities to tell an inclusive story of our state’s essential role in our nation’s War for Independence and all of the struggles for civil rights and justice that followed."

Under the leadership of Chair Assemblymember Michaelle Solages (D-Nassau County), the members of the Black, Puerto Rican, Hispanic, and Asian Legislative Caucus released the "2024 People’s Budget" – an annual document outlining budget priorities crucial for uplifting and enhancing the livelihoods of Black, Latino, and Asian communities across New York State. This year’s budget committee was led by Co-Chairs Senator Samra Brouk, NYS Senator Zellnor Y. Myrie 米维, Assemblymember Amanda Septimo, and Assemblymember Steven Raga.

Centered on the theme "A Demand for Justice" the Caucus advocates for tangible, long-term solutions that align with the state’s overarching racial and social justice objectives.

The Haverstraw Brick Museum is rebuilding its facilities in a $3 million renovation project to create a state-of-the-art museum. The renovation will increase the museum’s capacity to offer educational and public programming and restore the original 19th-century structure. It will add space for the museum’s collection, archives, staff offices, a terrace roof garden, and an ADA-compliant back entrance. They will also create the “Center for Innovation,” a space dedicated to examining historical and contemporary fine art and architectural tradecrafts that use clay as a creative and construction medium.

✨ Due tomorrow✨

Join hundreds of museum professionals from across the state to discuss the 2024 conference theme "Giving Voice to Value."

Submit a proposal for a pre-conference workshop, panel discussion, facilitated discussion, or peer-to-peer learning experience by tomorrow, Wednesday, November 22.

Learn more about the theme below or visit: https://nysmuseums.org/Call-for-Proposals



Museums are looking at new ways to communicate their value to stakeholders, funders, legislators, visitors, and their communities. Museums dedicate resources to rationalize relevance, impact, community service, and investment in collections, programs, and facilities. What if those resources could be allocated to doing the work instead of pursuing funding for the next big thing that will help keep the doors open? What could our future look like if we created a sustainable business model that connected collections, education, and communications and correlated our values to our budgets?

We seek proposals for conference sessions that share how you and your colleagues recently:

→ Collaborated with colleagues on a project that highlights the value of museums in our cultural ecosystems
→ Grew capacity and revenue
→ Raised awareness of functional and capital necessities
→ Shared the relevance and importance of collections
→ Adapted programming to meet audience needs
→ Crafted new interpretive strategies to increase community engagement
→ Expanded mission to serve new audiences
→ Nurtured human resources to build equity and inclusion
→ Developed programs connected to commemorations
→ Adopted new ways to communicate with stakeholders, funders, and legislators
→ Secured and improved accessibility to historic structures
→ Increased financial sustainability
→ Changed organizational culture
→ and Created opportunities to support democracy

Proposals should include multiple perspectives on panels; illustrate collaboration across disciplines, sizes, and geographic locations; and illuminate the complex conditions under which we sustain, thrive, and support the history, art, culture of New York State. Join us in Albany to share your ideas about how we can build a better future for New York’s museums.

If you have questions about the theme or how to submit a proposal, please send an email to [email protected].

In 2021, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden was awarded a $178,668 Museums for America grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services in the Lifelong Learning category to expand its Interpretive Master Plan with the goal of becoming a more inclusive, living museum. The expansion project titled, Inclusive Master Plan, helped the Garden include a broader cross-section of perspectives and achieve its goals to become a more welcoming, urban museum. The project formalizes inclusive practices such as providing staff professional development, amplifying community voices, and expanding storytelling about the Garden’s history and collections through its staff and volunteers while strengthening the Garden’s ability to serve the public.

116 New York State museums responded to the Museum Association of New York's survey from all ten REDC regions, with representation from museums of multiple disciplines and budget sizes.

MANY compared this data to the American Alliance of Museums 2023 National Snapshot of United States Museums, fielded in March and April 2023 by Wilkening Consulting with 340 museum responses.

While NYS museums are trending at the same rate as nationally reported data in some areas, in other areas they are lagging behind.

- 43% of responding NYS museums have yet to recover to pre-pandemic attendance numbers, averaging a 66% attendance rate compared to pre-pandemic.
- 28% reported a decrease in staff size, an additional 16% loss in staff since 2019
- 36% of NYS museums are actively recruiting for positions
- 17% reported a decrease in their museum's operating budget, while 33% reported an increase.
- 50% reported that their museum's operating budget remained relatively the same as it was pre-pandemic which is 13% higher than the national data.
- More than half of responding museums received some type of federal pandemic relief funding.

Yesterday MANY staff spent the morning at the John Brown Farm State Historic Site and toured the historic house, barn, and A Memorial Field.

A Memorial Field is an installation that mourns the victims of the violence that permeates the Black experience in America and sheds light on the failures in our system of justice. The Field was researched and created by artist and author Ren Davidson Seward, who wrote factual epitaphs to commemorate the fallen in the continuing uncivil war in American that began with the liberation of enslaved peoples.

John Brown Farm State Historic Site is located in the town of North Elba. Brown moved to this site in 1849 to teach farming to African Americans as part of Gerrit Smith’s project to give away hundreds of 40-acre tracts to free Black New Yorkers to help them build new lives and make them property owners eligible to vote. Ten years later Brown led a raid on the armory at Harper’s Ferry W.VA. seeking to steal enough weapons to arm an insurrection and bring an end to slavery. The raid failed. He was caught, tried, and executed. His body was returned and laid to rest at the farm.

Thank you so much to the staff at and artist Ren Davidson Steward for meeting us and taking us on a tour of the site.

Indigenous Peoples' Day honors Native Americans, their resilience and their contributions to US society in the face of generations of assimilation, discrimination and genocide.

The Museum Association of New York is a statewide organization but the work and MANY office (Troy) is located on the ancestral homelands of the Mohican people, who are the Indigenous peoples of this land. despite tremendous hardship in being forced from here, today their community resides in Wisconsin and is known as the Stockbridge-Munsee Community. We pay honor and respect to their ancestors past and present as we commit to building a more inclusive and equitable space for all. 

And our colleagues at The Rockwell Museum share further steps…

“While a land acknowledgment should be the first step towards an actionable plan for an institution to have to honor and connect with the tribal representation in their area, a land acknowledgment is not a call to action in and of itself. Its action is to combat erasure and the colonial myth that Indigenous peoples exist only in the past.”

New York is Native Land.

In 2022, the Edward Hopper House was awarded $49,500 from the Institute of Museum and Library Services to work with professional conservators to complete conservation treatments on fragile objects in its collection. The museum worked with book, paper, and photographer conservators at the Conservation Center for Art & Historic Artifacts to complete treatment on 27 items that were identified as extremely fragile, rendering them currently inaccessible for use in exhibitions, programming, and research.
