The permanent collections of the Art Museum and its subsidiary, the Joseph Allen Skinner Museum, include more than 24,000 works of art, decorative art, and material and visual culture from around the world and through time. Founded in 1876, our holdings continue to grow through gifts and purchases. Selections from these diverse collections are on view in our public galleries, and stored objects are also available for classes or individual appointments by students, faculty, scholars, and community members.
