Highlights from the Permanent Collection

May 17, 2015July 15, 2015


Last summer the museum reinstalled its permanent collection galleries, integrating works from the Lunder Collection with the museum's core holdings and select loans. Supported by the Henry Luce Foundation, this display reflects the museum's ongoing commitment to a deep representation of American art from the 19th century to the present. Highlights include David Smith's steel Voltri Bolton II (1962), Maya Lin's monumental marble sculpture Disappearing Bodies of Water (2013), a meter box by Donald Judd (1977), and Robert Mangold's 18 acrylic and pencil drawings (1991) given by the Alex Katz Foundation. Cherished cornerstones of the collection such as Albert Bierstadt's View of Chimney Rock (1860) and Winslow Homer's The Trapper (1870) are featured in addition to recently acquired works by Jacob Lawrence, Helen Torr, Frederic Edwin Church, William Matthew Prior, and Joshua Johnson.

Museum Hours: Tues. – Sat., 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.; Sun., noon – 5 p.m.; Closed Mon. Free tours are available Fridays at 2 p.m. Admission to the museum is free.
