"The ninety-two paintings, sculptures and tapestries on display in the Empire State Plaza in Albany form the greatest collection of modern American art in any single public site that is not a museum. Purchased by New York State between 1966 in 1973, the collection was intended to bring to fruition Nelson A. Rockefeller's desire to collect contemporary art that reflects the period. The collection remains today as a testimony both to the greatest collective endeavor of the 'New York School' and to the original conception of art in a public space."
