The permanent collection is comprised of over 5,000 objects from many cultures and from all over the globe. This significant university resource is primarily the result of bequests and gifts.

With holdings that range from ancient objects created before the common era to contemporary art from the twenty-first century, and art from Europe, North and South America, Africa, China, Japan and the Pacific Islands, this research field serves the university community across disciplines. The collection continues to grow with the addition of fine historic and contemporary art.
