More than ever, The Victor D’Amico Institute of Art/ The Art Barge has become a place for personal renewal. A summer base where you can share exciting new artistic, environmental and social activities with people of all ages.

Built in 1960 by Victor D’Amico, The Art Barge is a stimulating setting in a natural environment that nurtures the creative spirit and has attracted the attention of landscape painters and photographers. Victor D’Amico was the founding Director of the Education Department at the Museum of Modern Art from 1937 until 1970. He was not only a remarkable artist and teacher, but a visionary and pioneer of modern art education.  Many new classes have been added to The Art Barge programming over the decades.

Workshops are offered in many disciplines: painting, collage, pastel, watercolor, 3d, encaustic, drawing, mixed media and photography.

The D’Amico House is located about a mile north of The Art Barge and contains many treasures from the private works of Victor and his wife Mabel. The house is open by appointment-only throughout the year.  Please contact us for a visit.
