University Collections

The University Art Galleries maintains the University’s collection of modern and contemporary art that it has acquired over the years through bequests and donations by faculty and friends of the University and local community. Most notable are George Segal’s piece Street Crossing, works by Alexander Calder, drawings by Alberto Giacometti, the Lida Hilton Print Collection and the Lucy Lewis Collection of contemporary Native American pottery.

The University also owns the Wingert Collection of traditional African and Oceanic masks and sculptures, and the well-known Cosla Collection of Italian Renaissance and 16th- to 19th-century European art.
