New Admission Policy Solves Our Parking Problem

On Saturdays, visitors will park at Springs School and ride to and from the museum by shuttle. Saturday on-site parking is for the disabled only.
One-hour guided tours at noon, 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays are reserved on our website, pkhouse.org. Click on “Visiting Us” and the “Buy Tickets” button for the calendar. Admission is $15 for adults, $10 for children under 12. Infants are free. Pollock-Krasner House members and SUNY/CUNY students, faculty and staff are free with a coupon code, for which you need to call 631-324-4929.
Open hours on Saturdays are noon to 5 p.m., no reservations required. There is a free
OnCell audio guide. Visitors will park at Springs School, 48 School Street, half a
mile from the museum. A map and directions are on our website. The free shuttle will

New Jackson Pollock Studio Fashions from Sacai
Japanese fashion designer Chitose Abe’s Sacai label has created an apparel line using details of the Pollock studio floor. The new line includes coats, jackets, trousers, separates, footwear and a handbag. A selection of the designs, in Sacai’s Fall 2019 ready-to-wear collection, was premiered during Paris Fashion Week in March. The museum licenses the imagery under the Jackson Pollock Studio brand, and receives royalties on sales. We have also partnered with The Hundreds on a streetwear collection, and have an ongoing partnership with Medicom Toy in Japan for a wide range of studio floor-themed products.
“Lee Krasner: Living Colour” Opens at the Barbican Art Gallery, London, on May 30
Lee Krasner’s first solo museum exhibition was held at the Whitechapel Gallery in
London in 1965. Now she returns to that city with a major retrospective exhibition
featuring nearly 100 works—many seen in the UK for the first time—from across her
fifty-year career. It includes striking early self-portraits; a body of energetic
charcoal life drawings; original photographs of her proposed department store window
displays, designed during the war effort; and her acclaimed Little Image paintings
from the 1940s, with their tightly controlled geometries. It also features collages
composed of torn-up earlier work and a selection of her most impressive large-scale
Combat, 1965. Oil on canvas, 70 ½ x 161 in. National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne.
Lenders include the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, the Whitney Museum of American Art, Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Jewish Museum and the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, as well as a large number of private collections. Major support was provided by the Pollock-Krasner Foundation.
After closing in London on September 1, the exhibition will travel to the Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt, the Zentrum Paul Klee in Bern, and the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao.
