Sensational Museum – What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon when in NYC. The space is breathtaking. There are three floors of art in this Museum in the Chelsea area in New York City. The museum is home of the Jean Miotte foundation. The Museum has a permanent collection featuring Miotte's paintings, which I find inspirational as well as playful. His work is showcased on the first floor taking up large proportions of wall space, making the viewer feel as though they are in his studio.

The three floors of art work, typically change every month. Admission are very inexpensive compared to any other New York Museums. I also noticed that Thursdays at the museum are free!

As I wondered through each floor, there were very friendly staff members available to answer any questions I had concerning the art or museum. I find myself wanting to know about the artist or piece of work when I am in a gallery or in a museum, but I am at loss as to who to ask.

A great experience will come at least once a month to see the latest from the Chelsea Art Museum.. can't wait 'til the next exhibition!!

Great space, interesting exhibits – For the most part, enjoyed the location and the exhibits were interesting.

Bad vibes from security guard - such an unhappy, ugly human being should not be interacting with public.

An institution committed to presenting work by young and international artists alongside recognized mid-career artists. – The Scene
The museum's 30,000-square-foot, three-story brick building, which opened in November 2002, features three major spaces, each with its own ambience and function. The big, open ground-floor space gives maximum impact to large
works and installations; an intimate second-floor gallery is well-suited to photography and works on paper; the bright, loft-like top floor houses the permanent collection. The handsome design by Alfredo Carballude and Michel Morris creates an easy flow from gallery to gallery that welcomes visitors and allows ample room to contemplate the art.

The Collection
The museum's mission is to become a meeting point where American artists rub elbows with overseas peers, thus sparking conversations among artworks and visitors. Though the
permanent collection includes work by Jean Arp, Robert Motherwell, Sam Francis and Joan Mitchell, the collection is dominated by the oeuvre of Jean Miotte, an originator of L'Art Informel (and a co-founder of the museum).
