After 20 years as a successful Wall Street trader, Kenny Ackerman walked away, seeking another endeavor he could pursue with a true passion. He found it during a visit with his family to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2003. Inspired by the paintings in the Impressionist and American Galleries, Kenny began studying, then collecting works of fine art. As a result, he has developed expertise in Impressionist, Modern, Postwar, and American Art. Our goal at Ackerman’s Fine Art is to assist collectors and private institutions in creating, managing, and refining their art collections. “Not a day goes by that I’m not adding to my knowledge of 19th and 20th Century paintings. Bringing outstanding works of art into the lives of my clients is an incredible feeling. I do not look at it as work – it is my passion.”
