Mission
The mission of The Westmoreland Museum of American Art is to enrich a growing public through innovative and collaborative approaches to the collection, preservation and presentation of American art.

Our Vision
To be a preeminent museum of American art.

Brief History
The Westmoreland was established in 1959 through a generous bequest from Mary Marchand Woods, a long-time Greensburg resident who wanted her community to have an important cultural institution. From the early years, an inspirational collection of significant American art was amassed, alongside a strong exhibition and educational program.

A 1997 campaign greatly improved the visitor’s experience at the Museum, and made it a vital and forward-thinking regional asset.

With its 50th Anniversary in 2009, there was an opportunity to celebrate past accomplishments and discuss future goals as a museum for the 21st century—marked by a long-planned-for expansion and renovation.

Fast forward to today.
After a national search, Ennead Architects of New York was selected to design The New Westmoreland—a dynamic building to reflect its era and its function. LaQuatra Bonci Landscape Architects of Pittsburgh was chosen to beautify the Museum grounds.

The transformational and LEED® certified design features a complete renovation of the original 30,000 square-foot space, and includes a 13,287 square-foot addition with new galleries and community and educational programming spaces.

A new cantilevered wing will provide expanded space for traveling exhibitions and a new collection of post-1950s works.

A lower level wing will make way for a large Community Room for Westmoreland Jazz Society concerts, lectures and private rental events.

Outdoors, a masterful design unfolds with a series of intimate gardens and outdoor terraces, a meadow and bounty of native plantings. The Garden’s innovative, environmentally-sustainable and fully ADA-accessible design features outdoor sculptures, seating areas and Wi-Fi. It can be enjoyed year-round.
