Facility History:

The Hyde opened as a museum in 1963. A product of the golden age of the private art collector, The Hyde is one of the Northeast's exceptional small art museums with distinguished collections of European and American art. The core collection, acquired by Museum founders Louis and Charlotte Hyde, includes works by such artists as Sandro Botticelli, El Greco, Rembrandt, Peter Paul Rubens, Edgar Degas, Georges Seurat, Pablo Picasso, and Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and American artists Thomas Eakins, Childe Hassam, Winslow Homer, and James McNeill Whistler. The Museum's collection of Modern and Contemporary art features works by artists including Josef Albers, Dorothy Dehner, Sam Gilliam, Adolph Gottlieb, Grace Hartigan, Ellsworth Kelly, Sol LeWitt, George McNeil, Robert Motherwell, Ben Nicholson, Robert Rauschenberg, and Bridget Riley. Today, it presents changing exhibitions in its five galleries, as well as lectures, cultural events, family activities, and school programming in its museum complex and historic house in downtown Glens Falls.
