The permanent collection of the Wellin Museum of Art began with the gift of an eclectic private collection, and has grown to include nearly 7,000 works. The museum is associated with Hamilton College.
The art and artifacts represent a broad range of cultures, historical periods, and artistic practices and movements, including Greek and Roman antiquities, Native American art, and drawings and watercolors. The holdings include American, European (particularly British modernist), and Asian paintings, prints, photographs, and sculpture and the collection continues to grow with an emphasis on contemporary art and historical works.
