From ancient objects to the latest contemporary works, the UMFA galleries—reimagined and remodeled in 2017—showcase the breadth and depth of human history and creativity.
The Museum’s collection of nearly 20,000 original works of art is wide-ranging, including European, Pacific, Mesoamerican, Ancient Mediterranean, and American and regional art, new dedicated galleries for African and Chinese objects, and the latest modern and contemporary art.
The Museum also serves as a jumping-off point for an exploration of three Land Art installations. Land Art is a process-based approach to art-making in which the artist makes excursions into the environment to perform site-specific interventions.
