About Our Collection

The Art Museum’s collection numbers nearly 5,000 objects and is international in scope, including paintings, prints, works on paper, sculpture, and ceramics. 

The current art collection has been created through private gifts, donations from alumni and individual collectors, and purchases over the decades. 

Strengths of the art collection include paintings by Albert Bierstadt, William Merritt Chase, Thomas Cole, Jean Metzinger, William Schumacher, Rockwell Kent, William Conger, and Tim McFarlane, as well as the largest public collection of art by American Modernist Blanche Lazzell. 

Within the prints and works on paper in the art collection are works by such artists as Giovanni Battista Piranesi, Rembrandt van Rijn, Francisco Goya, Pablo Picasso, Stanley William Hayter, Robert Rauschenberg, Andy Warhol, and Jasper Johns, along with prints by contemporary artists William Kentridge, Kara Walker, Leslie Dill, Willie Cole and Ed Ruscha.
