The Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive at U.C. Berkeley holds a collection of more than 19,000 works of art and 17,500 films and videos. Strengths include Ming and Qing dynasty Chinese painting, Baroque painting, old master prints and drawings, early American painting, 19th- and early-20th-century photography, and Modern and Conceptual art.
Located in Berkeley’s downtown arts district, the new BAMPFA building integrates a 48,000-square-foot Art Deco–style repurposed printing plant with a dramatic new 35,000-square-foot building.
