Mission:
The Museum of Art and Archaeology advances understanding of our artistic and cultural heritage through research, collection and interpretation. We help students, scholars and the broader community to experience authentic and significant art and artifacts firsthand and to place them in meaningful contexts. We further this mission by preserving, enhancing and providing access to the collections for the benefit of present and future generations.


Galleries

Treasures from Antiquity: The Weinberg Gallery of Ancient and Byzantine Art
The Museum’s antiquities collection includes objects representing the major cultures of the ancient Mediterranean world. While Greek and Roman art are the collection’s emphasis, ancient Egypt and the ancient Near East are also significantly represented, with a smaller area dedicated to Byzantine and medieval works. Particular strengths in the Greek and Roman collections include approximately 3,000 coins, and a significant number of lamps, glass objects (mostly vessels), Greek and South Italian pottery, terracotta sculpture, and small bronzes. A growing collection of stone sculpture is represented by Roman funerary monuments, portraits of the emperors Nero and Hadrian, and one of an unidentified third-century empress. The antiquities collection also includes substantial holdings representing the cultures of Egypt, Anatolia, Mesopotamia, Iran, Palestine, and Cyprus. Iranian artifacts are particularly strong in pottery and Luristan . A number of pottery vessels from the early Hacilar and Yortan cultures strengthen the Anatolian collection. The Museum’s interest in the archaeology of Cyprus has led to the acquisition of a fine collection of Cypriot pottery. A painted linen mummy shroud, plaster mummy masks, a Coptic tunic, a collection of Coptic textile fragments, and an exquisite agate bowl are exceptional examples from the Egyptian holdings. Finally, over 900 objects from the Palestinian region attest the Museum’s long-standing connections with the archaeology of that area.

The European and American Galleries
The Museum of Art and Archaeology boasts an exceptional collection of medieval through 19th century art, built around a Samuel H. Kress Study Collection received in 1961. Works by Bordone, Mellone, Romanino, Frans Francken the Younger, Caracciolo, and Bramantino, van Goyen, Romney, Gerry, Bierstadt, George Caleb Bingham. Wyburg, Vedder, Bricker and Colman grace the main galleries.
