The UAMA collection is comprised of approximately 6,000 works of art, with particular strength in early modern art, 20th century American and European art, and a growing collection of contemporary art. Highlights of the Permanent Collection allows the museum to keep treasured favorites such as Georgia O’Keeffe’s Red Canna and Jackson Pollock’s Number 20, 1950 on view as well as to bring out other works from the vault on a rotating basis. Juxtapositions of different styles and subjects allow visitors to make comparisons and understand the works in new and exciting ways.
*Please note that we have an active loan program and at times, some of our highlights might be on loan to other institutions. We always recommend that you check our loans page or call the museum ahead of your visit to see if a particular work is on view.
