The Belskie Museum of Art & Science

Located in Closter, NJ, the Belskie Museum of Art and Science was founded by the Closter Lions Club to preserve, house and exhibit the works of Abram Belskie, a sculptor, medical illustrator, and resident of Closter. Upon completion of the museum in l993, The Closter Lions Club donated it to the Borough of Closter. The Belskie Museum is operated as a tax-exempt, non-profit corporation under the direction of a six member Board of Directors appointed by the Borough of Closter, the Closter Lions Club, and the Closter Library Board of Trustees. Funding is from grants, memberships, exhibitions and donations. The museum is run solely through the efforts of volunteers. The museum exhibits ten shows yearly; the museum also has a collection of works donated by exhibiting artists.

The museum works in collaboration with the Art Students League of New York City and the Vytlacil School of Plein Air Painting in Sparkill, New York in producing exhibitions of works by instructors and students. As part of Northern Valley Regional High School's community service program, senior students organize, install and monitor their own art exhibit each May under the guidance of their art teachers and the museum.

In 2002 the Kertesz Foundation sponsored Andre Kertesz, The American Years l936-85 curated by Robert Gurbo. In that same year, the City of Padua, Italy sponsored Alchimia del Segno: Sculptures, Watercolors and Etchings, an exhibition of artworks by Paduan Emilio Baracco.
