Philip Guston is best known as a leading member of the New York school of abstract expressionism, but a considerable portion of his work falls into other categories. By 1968 Guston had worked his way through to a form of surrealistic juxtaposition of schematic images which appeared to derive from Kafka, deChirico, and Goya.

The Plattsburgh State Art Museum is comprised of over 4,500 works of art, representing numerous regions of the world, from the ancient to the contemporary. Works are displayed within our three main galleries, an outdoor sculpture park and exhibition areas throughout the campus. These facilities produce over twenty-five exhibitions a year of both a national and regional nature. Expanding upon the pluralistic ideal of Andre Malreaux's concept of a "Museum Without Walls," the Plattsburgh State Art Museum has become an open visual art resource for the College and the Champlain Valley/Adirondack Region.
