Founded in 1913, the Memorial Art Gallery was given in trust to the University and is considered one of the finest art museums in the country. With 12,000 works spanning 50 centuries of world art, it houses relics of antiquity and contemporary works, including important pieces by Claude Monet, Henri Matisse, Winslow Homer, Mary Cassatt, Georgia O'Keefe, George Condo, and Nick Cave.
