My Profile

Together we are MANY

MANY was granted its New York State charter in January of 1962. It was one of the first professional organizations supported by the New York State Council on the Arts (founded 1961) and pre-dates the formation of the National Endowments for the Humanities and the Arts (1965) and Humanities New York (1975).

In 2014, MuseumWise and MANY merged under the Museum Association of New York creating a service organization uniquely qualified to serve all of our state’s arts, history, and cultural organizations.
