The KMA's DNA
The Katonah Museum of Art promotes the understanding and enjoyment of the visual arts for diverse audiences. The Museum presents exhibitions that explore ideas about art, culture, and society – past and present – through innovative exhibition and education programs.
We respectfully acknowledge that the Katonah Museum of Art sits on the traditional homeland of Indigenous peoples, including the Ramapoo/Ramapough Tribal Nation, who stewarded this territory. We recognize the involuntary displacement of these Indigenous peoples. We commit to increasing awareness of the legacies of dispossession while actively working to recognize and correct present and future practices that perpetuate the erasure of history. We thank Indigenous elders for honoring this land, and we acknowledge our responsibility to follow their example.
We present this as a living land acknowledgement that we will continue to revise and strengthen in collaboration with community members.
