The Maier Museum of Art at Randolph College houses an outstanding collection of American art, chiefly paintings, works on paper, and photographs dating from the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries. Located on the Randolph campus and open to visitors year-round, the Museum serves both the academic community and the general public and offers changing exhibitions, rotating displays of the College’s permanent collection, and educational programs.
The Collection’s strengths lie in American Impressionism and in early 20th-century Realism, and in general, features works illustrating the evolution of American art from the early 19th-century to the present day. Among the artists represented are Gilbert Stuart, Thomas Cole, Winslow Homer, Mary Cassatt, Georgia O’Keeffe, and Andrew Wyeth. Significant holdings of drawings, prints, and paintings by Arthur B. Davies and Ben Shahn make the Museum an important center for the study of their work.
