One of the four Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh, the Museum of Art owns a collection of more than 30,000 objects.
Holdings, from the ancient world to the present, include painting and sculpture; prints and drawings; photographs; architectural casts, renderings, and models; decorative arts and design; and film, video, and digital imagery. The collection is overseen by five curatorial departments: contemporary art, decorative arts and design, fine arts, photography, and the Heinz Architectural Center.
Particular areas of strength are painting and sculpture from 1850 to 1910; decorative arts and design from 1800 to today; and contemporary art from the 1980s onward.
