Permanent Collection: Object of the Month

The International Museum of Art & Science permanent collection began with the institution’s founding in 1967 through numerous gifts from local donors. Since its inception, the collection has grown to include over 2,000 natural history and geology specimens and 4,500 folk art and textile objects. The 1,500 fine art works represent many countries and date from the 16th century to the present. The collection continues to expand through museum purchases and generous gifts from collectors and artists.

In order to share more of IMAS’s permanent collection with the community, we will be highlighting an object every month. This gives viewers special access to the museum’s amazing and diverse collections that are not on display in our galleries.
