American Art Collection
The American Art Collection includes outstanding works of art from the Colonial period to the 1960s and provides museum visitors an opportunity to
learn about the achievements of American artists throughout the nation’s history. Selections from this collection are on view in year-round exhibitions,
and they serve as one of the pillars the museum’s exceptional educational programming.
The American Art Collection has grown due to early and continued interest by the museum’s membership and the community at large. In 1993, the Orlando Museum of Art’s Friends of American Art was formed to support the collection and fund new acquisitions.
The Orlando Museum of Art is grateful to the Martin Andersen – Gracia Andersen Foundation Inc. for lending its collection of American painting and sculpture to the museum. This outstanding collection is a valued resource for our community and greatly enhances the museum’s presentation of the history of American art.
