The heart of an art museum is its permanent collection, held in the public trust and preserving works of art that project artistic and historical significance. Since opening in 1978 the Foosaner Art Museum has accumulated nearly 3,000 objects, spanning 20 centuries. These items form the Museum's Permanent Collection, reflecting not only the Museum?s interests and specialties, but also the lives of the people who have lived in the community.
While the rotating exhibitions bring nationally and internationally recognized artwork and are tuned to the pulse of the contemporary art world, the permanent collection is a showcase of historical art movements and interests.
The Foosaner Art Museum's permanent collection is comprised of five categories: Modern and Contemporary Art, The Conill Mendoza Collection of American Industrial Design, Asian Art, Cultural Education Collection and Women Artists.
Throughout the year, visitors can experience a changing selection from the Museum's permanent collection.
The Foosaner Museum of Art enhances and enriches the quality of life of the community and its visitors with an enduring appreciation of art through exhibitions, collections and educational programs which enlighten and inspire the human creative spirit.
Classes and workshops are offered in all media year-round.
