The La Salle University Art Museum opened its doors in 1976 as a place for La Salle students, especially those majoring in art history, as well as for the communities in the surrounding areas, to experience art in an intimate setting.

The beginnings of the museum were ten years earlier at one of the University’s fall honors convocations. John Walker, director of the National Gallery of Art in Washington, delivered the address, and well-known collector Lessing Rosenwald and American artist Andrew Wyeth received honorary degrees. The University announced that it was beginning a degree program in art history and had begun acquiring art. What began as a modest study collection has since blossomed into the La Salle Art Museum, now considered one of the city’s gems.

Currently, La Salle is the only university in the Philadelphia area to own a permanent display of paintings, drawings and sculptures from the Renaissance to the present. The collection is housed in a series of period rooms in the lower level of Olney Hall on the University’s main campus.

Joslyn Art Museum - Omaha - Nebraska - U.S.A.

Joslyn Art Museum was a generous gift to the people of Omaha from Sarah H. Joslyn (1851–1940) in memory of her husband, George A. Joslyn (1848–1916).
The extraordinary Art Deco building was hailed not only as an important addition to the city of Omaha, but to modern American architecture as well. In 1938 it was listed among the 100 finest buildings in the United States. Construction took three years and cost almost $3 million. The three-level interior comprises some 38 marbles from around the world and includes stone from Italy, France, Germany, Belgium, and Morocco. The exterior and retaining wall alone filled 250 boxcars with George Pink (Etowah Fleuri) marble.
The building’s architects utilized Native American themes throughout the museum interior and on the east entrance columns. Moravian floor tiles used in the colorful Storz Fountain Court include symbols for literature, music, architecture, and painting.

The Walter and Suzanne Scott Pavilion, a 58,000 square-foot addition designed by renowned British architect Norman Foster, Baron Foster of Thames Bank, and built in 1994 at a cost of $15.95 million, connects to the original Memorial building with the glorious glass ConAgra Foods Atrium.

In 2007, Joslyn celebrated 75 years of achievement and inspiration with an exciting year of events and programs recognizing the Museum's permanent collection, special exhibitions, building, campus, and community partnerships.

At a gala event on November 11, 2006, marking the start of Joslyn's year-long 75th anniversary celebration, Joslyn announced a plan for a new sculpture garden. Opened to the public on June 6, 2009, the garden is the focal point of a campus redevelopment that has dramatically changed the face of Joslyn's grounds and includes flowing reflective water features, enhanced entrances and drives, renovated and expanded parking, landscaped green spaces, rich granite pathways, an entrance plaza to welcome visitors, and important sculptures by internationally renowned artists. On October 31, 2009, the Museum opened a children's Discovery Garden on the northwest corner of campus, the third and final phase of the redevelopment.

In May 2013, the Museum stopped charging general admission, again providing free access to the public as it had done from its opening until the mid-1960s.


National Quilt Museum - Paducah - Kuntucky - U.S.A.

Since day one, The National Quilt Museum has aimed to support quilters and advance the art of quilting by displaying exceptional quilt and fiber art exhibits, providing workshops and other educational opportunities, and promoting the art of quilting.
Now in our 25th year, we are honored to play such a significant role in both the quilting community and the art community as a whole. Over the years, the Museum has grown to become a destination for quilting and fiber art enthusiasts worldwide. Annually we receive visitors from all 50 US states and over 40 foreign countries from every continent. The Museum’s onsite and travelling exhibits are viewed by over 110,000 people per year. In addition, over 6,000 youth and adults participate in our educational opportunities on an annual basis.
The National Quilt Museum is the brainchild of Bill and Meredith Schroeder of Paducah, Kentucky. Both quilting enthusiasts, they aimed to start a Museum that would celebrate the work of today’s quilters and advance the art of quilting by bringing it to audiences that had previously not experienced the art form. The Schroeder’s chose to build the Museum in Paducah, Kentucky to give back to the community in which they have lived for many years. The $2.2 million facility, which is the largest facility in the world dedicated to quilting, sits two blocks from the Ohio River in historic downtown Paducah.
The Museum changes exhibits 8-10 times per year, so visitors will enjoy a unique experience every time they visit. Achieving this high level of exhibit versatility is extremely important and the Museum continually strives to expand its collection. On the day the Museum opened in 1991, the entire collection included 85 quilts that were on loan from the founders. Over time, the collection has expanded both in quantity and diversity. Today the Museum’s collection exceeds 500 works of art and continues to grow. In addition to exhibiting the exceptional works from our collection, throughout the year the Museum also features travelling exhibits made up of breathtaking works of quilt and fiber art.
As the Museum has grown in popularity, its educational programs have also expanded rapidly. Having started with a few small workshops in the early years, educational programs have ballooned to include participants of all ages from all over the world. On one end of the spectrum, some of the most recognized quilters come to the Museum to conduct workshops throughout the year. These workshops are attended by quilters of all skill levels that aim to learn from the best. On the other end of the spectrum, our youth educational programs offer kids the opportunity to use their creativity and learn basic skills. Our largest youth program is the School Block Challenge. The challenge is sponsored by Moda Fabric, this programs challenges students to create a 16” by 16” quilt block from a packet of three different fabrics. The School Block Challenge is an annual event with national participation. The Museum encourages other countries to become School Block Challenge partners in order to advance the art of quilting worldwide.

Whitney Museum - New York - U.S.A.

As the preeminent institution devoted to the art of the United States, the Whitney Museum of American Art presents the full range of twentieth-century and contemporary American art, with a special focus on works by living artists. The Whitney is dedicated to collecting, preserving, interpreting, and exhibiting American art, and its collection—arguably the finest holding of twentieth-century American art in the world—is the Museum's key resource. The Museum's signature exhibition, the Biennial, is the country's leading survey of the most recent developments in American art.

Innovation has been a hallmark of the Whitney since its beginnings. It was the first museum dedicated to the work of living American artists and the first New York museum to present a major exhibition of a video artist (Nam June Paik in 1982). Such figures as Jasper Johns, Cy Twombly, and Cindy Sherman were given their first museum retrospectives by the Whitney. The Museum has consistently purchased works within the year they were created, often well before the artists became broadly recognized. The Whitney was the first museum to take its exhibitions and programming beyond its walls by establishing corporate-funded branch facilities, and the first museum to undertake a program of collection-sharing (with the San Jose Museum of Art) in order to increase access to its renowned collection.
Designed by architect Renzo Piano and situated between the High Line and the Hudson River, the Whitney's new building vastly increases the Museum’s exhibition and programming space, providing the most expansive view ever of its unsurpassed collection of modern and contemporary American art.
