Housed in the 1938 purpose-built building situated on 11 acres which comprise the Copeland Sculpture Garden, the museum holds the most significant Pre-Raphaelite collection outside the United Kingdom, and a pre-eminent collection of John Sloan’s art, representing virtually every aspect of his career. Additional strengths of the Museum include American illustrators and 19th- and early-20th-century American artists.
With the 21st century has come a renewed commitment to enhance the holdings with contemporary American
artists beginning to share the spotlight in the increasingly inclusive Museum collection, including works by contemporary masters such as Robert Motherwell, George Segal, and Jim Dine.
