Collection Highlight: Sculpture and Ceramics

Three-dimensional arts are also well represented in the museum’s collection. Works by artists including Leonard Baskin, Buckminster Fuller, Henry Moore and, more recently, Jacob Hashimoto and Buzz Spector demonstrate how three-dimensional forms have evolved over time. The sculpture collection is complemented by the Harry Shaw Collection, which features more than 160 examples of contemporary ceramics.
