Collection

Art Bridges demonstrates its values of access and inclusion by activating a dynamic and diverse collection of American art.

The Art Bridges collection is ever-evolving, so check back often for more updates.

The Art Bridges collection includes significant works of the 19th- through 21st-centuries and features art of exceptional quality that speaks to the layered stories of American art and American life. The collection has particular strengths in abstraction, modernism, conceptual projects, figural compositions, images of nature and the environment, and expanded representations of identity.
