Afternoon Out: Chagall’s Windows at
Union Church & Rockefeller Estate
Saturday, November 9

Knobloch Family Farmhouse

In preparation for our winter exhibition Chagall for Children, SM&NC invites you to join us on an Afternoon Out to Union Church of Pocantico Hills & Kykuit, the Rockefeller Estate in Sleepy Hollow, NY.

The awe-inspiring stained-glass windows by European masters Henri Matisse and Marc Chagall were commissioned by the Rockefeller family to adorn this unassuming country church. Henri Matisse’s last work, the Rose Window, and nine windows by Marc Chagall create a dramatic combination of light and color, art and spirituality. Step inside and be inspired.  

The hilltop estate Kykuit was home to four generations of Rockefellers, culminating with Nelson, his wife, and children. The mansion and its creatively landscaped lawns and gardens overlooking the Hudson River house a diverse collection of art that complements the classical architecture of the house.
