Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center – 631.324.4929

As director of the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center, www.pkhouse.org, I administer the former home and studio of Jackson Pollock (1912-1956) and Lee Krasner (1908-1984), two of the foremost abstract expressionist painters. The National Historic Landmark site, which belongs to the Stony Brook Foundation, is located in East Hampton and is open to the public from May through October. Stony Brook students, faculty and staff are admitted free, and are welcome to visit in the off-season by appointment. Our research collections include a 2,000-volume art reference library, documentary archives, audio and video material, photographs, periodicals and ephemera related to 20th century American art and the influences on it, with special focus on the world-renowned eastern Long Island art community.

The Study Center is available to Stony Brook students, faculty and other researchers by appointment: call 631-324-4929. We will also be pleased to answer research inquiries by phone or email.
