The mission of the Maier Museum of Art specifies that its collecting concentrate on American art. This is understood to encompass works of art, in a variety of media, created by artists active in the United States. The Museum seeks for its collection objects of artistic significance that are representative of national trends, that illuminate the history of the visual arts in the United States, and that exemplify the best efforts of American artists. The Museum makes every effort to acquire the work of artists who represent the breadth and variety of America’s cultural heritage. In keeping with the College’s tradition of supporting contemporary artists, that is a chief focus of collecting efforts.
The Maier Museum of Art houses Randolph College’s nationally recognized collection features works by outstanding American artists of the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries. Located on the Randolph College campus and open to visitors year-round, the Museum serves both the academic community and the public and offers changing exhibitions, rotating displays of the Colleges permanent collection, and educational programs.
The Museum’s strengths lie in American Impressionism and in early 20th-century Realism. Contemporary photography and printmaking are recent areas of special interest. The collection in general features excellent works representing the evolution of American art from the early 19th century to the present day. Among the artists represented are Gilbert Stuart, Thomas Cole, Winsolw Homer, Mary Cassatt, Georgia' OKeeffe, and Andrew Wyeth. Significant holdings of drawings, prints, and paintings by Arthur B. Davies and Ben Shahn make the Museum an important center for the study of their work.
