Trip Planner: USA / New York State / Cold Spring / Magazzino Italian Art
Magazzino Italian Art is a museum and Research Center dedicated to advancing scholarship and public appreciation of postwar and contemporary Italian art in the United States. The museum was founded by Nancy Olnick and Giorgio Spanu with the mission to share works of the group of Italian artists who exhibited together in the late 1960s and early 1970s, affiliated with the art movement of Arte Povera, with American audiences. Magazzino opened to the public on June 28, 2017, with an exhibition dedicated to the influence and legacy of Margherita Stein, a late Italian dealer associated with artists active in Arte Povera circles and beyond. The museum is free and open to the public.It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Magazzino Italian Art and many more Cold Spring attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Cold Spring vacation builder app.
Magazzino Italian Art is located in Cold Spring, New York, within the Town of Philipstown on U.S. Route 9, on the former Cyberchron site. Magazzino, which means "warehouse" in Italian, consists of an old farmers’ warehouse (later turned into a dairy distribution center and then a computer factory) and a new building by Spanish architect Miguel Quismondo. The building includes a new exhibition space and a 5,000-volume library, making up the core of the Research Center, opened in 2018.
Magazzino Italian Art became a non-for-profit museum in 2018, operated by Magazzino Italian Art Foundation.

This is a nice museum showing interesting pieces. The staff is wonderful and helpful. I loved the building and its setup as well. When you arrive drive really slowly because the entrance is very easy to miss!
Beautiful space with a varied collection of prices by different artists. Suggested donation is $10, though it is pay what you wish. The grounds are manicured and include some outdoor installations. Plus donkeys ;)
