The Nicholas Roerich Museum is dedicated to the art of Nicholas Roerich, a Russian-born artist. The Museum sustains an ongoing effort to spread public awareness of the intermingled roles of peace and culture, and the ways in which each sustains the other. Information and materials about The Roerich Pact and the Banner of Peace are always available.
An 1898 Upper West Side town house contains this small, eccentric museum dedicated to the work of Russian artist Nicholas Roerich, who immigrated to New York in the 1920s and quickly developed an ardent following. Some 200 of his paintings hang here-notably some vast canvases of the Himalayas. Free chamber music concerts are held here most Sunday afternoons at 5, except in summer.
