There are over 6,000 works of art in the permanent collection of the Weatherspoon Art Museum. It is a collection respected both nationally and internationally for its historically rigorous, imaginative, and adventurous focus on modern and contemporary art. The spirit that has shaped the collection since its inception in 1941, a spirit of supporting new and different directions in art since the turn of the twentieth century until now, continues to guide the substantive growth of the collection today.
