The Snite Museum of Art features collections that place it among the finest university art museums in the nation. It contains over 24,000 works representing many of the principal cultures and periods of world art history.

Exceptional holdings include the Jack and Alfrieda Feddersen collection of Rembrandt etchings, the Noah L. and Muriel Butkin collection of 19th-century French art, the John D. Reilly collection of Old Master and 19th-century drawings, the Janos Scholz collection of 19th-century European photographs, and the Mr. and Mrs. Russell G. Ashbaugh, Jr., collection of Mestrovic sculpture and drawings. Other collection strengths include Olmec and Preclassic Mesoamerican art, 20th-century art, Northern Native American art, and decorative and design arts.

Outdoor sculpture is displayed on the University campus and in the Mary Loretto and Terrence J. Dillon Courtyard, which features two large kinetic sculptures by George Rickey. During the summer of 2007 additional works by Rickey were permanently installed in the Entrance Atrium Gallery. For more information on the Geogre Rickey Collection and Archives, contact Charles R. Loving, Director and Curator of the George Rickey Sculpture Archive.


The Friends is the membership organization that encourages participation by individuals and businesses in museum-related education, fund-raising, social and community outreach activities. The Friends sponsor special events to increase community participation through annual, ongoing programs, such as the Christmas Benefit Dinner, High School Art Day, Breakfast/Cinema, museum bus trips, and receptions at exhibition openings. Many members enjoy the Art and Architecture summer series and art history classes during the academic year.


A limited selection of merchandise will be available for purchase at the Museum's visitor information desk or by mail order. These include Snite publications, exhibition catalogues, posters and cards.
