What began as an interest in paintings by Carolina artists in 2002 has grown to encompass 1,200 objects with provenances that span the centuries and chronicle the cultural evolution of the American South.

Today, the Johnson Collection counts iconic masterworks among its holdings, as well as representative pieces by an astonishing depth and breadth of artists, native and visiting, whose lives and legacies form the foundation of Southern art history. Since 2013, the collection’s touring exhibitions have been loaned twenty-five times.

The Johnson Collection heralds the pivotal role that art of the South plays in the national narrative. ​
