Collections Acquired

The museum's art will include, but not limited to: Original Prints, Painting, Ceramics, Drawings, Sculpture, Photography, Woodworking, Glass and Video Arts. The collection will be centered around a strong original print collection. 

The permanent collection will consist of works by noted regional artists as well as American artists of reputation. Short-run exhibitions will come by loan, juried shows, crated exhibits and traveling art exhibition services. 

*The museum will acquire works of art in all genre by American artists of established reputation. The curator will decide the quality of a particular artwork and how it fits within the scope of American art and the collection. SWRMA will accept gifted works of art, which may be retained for the permanent collection or may be sold. Funds from sales of gifted pieces will go solely toward the museum collection for conservation and/or acquisition.
