Mission Statement

The Center collects, preserves, and studies art from all cultures and periods, serving the University and the public through exhibitions and programs that inspire the understanding and enjoyment of art. The Anderson Collection at Stanford University is a collection of 121 modern and contemporary American paintings and sculpture generously gifted by Harry W. and Mary Margaret Anderson and Mary Patricia Anderson Pence. This gift represents the core of their larger collection, one of the world’s most outstanding private assemblies of art, built by the family over the past 50 years.
