The University Permanent Art Collection

The Office of Cultural and Community Affairs maintains the University's permanent collection of artwork which includes important paintings, sculptures, graphics, textiles, and ceramics. Our primary responsibility is the management, care, and celebration of the university's fine art holdings. Selections from the University's permanent collection are displayed continuously throughout the year. This office is also the primary contact for the acquisition and donation of art to the university.

You can view the University's Acquisition Policy here.
