The Seligmann Center is located about 50 miles northwest of New York City in a vibrant rural area of Orange County, in the hamlet of Sugar Loaf. Once home to Kurt and Arlette Seligmann, the history of the site is palpable – Max Ernst slept in the guest house; Marcel Duchamp shot five bullets into the barn foundation; Alexander Calder pulled prints from the very same press that is still in use today; others, including Yves Tanguy, Kay Sage, Peggy Guggenheim, and Meyer Schapiro, all spent time on the property.
The Center is home to four galleries and performance spaces all housed in the homestead’s converted farmhouse buildings, as well as the Robert Fagan Art Library, the largest public collection of art books in the county. The Seligmann Center’s Permanent Collection features over 110 prints, and 20 paintings by Kurt Seligmann, as well as an archive of the couple’s photographs, letters, and personal effects – a portion of which are on view in the Seligmanns’ home.
