Permanent Collection

The Sweet Briar art collection comprises more than 3,700 objects from a variety of countries, historical periods and media. It has grown since the 1930s through the generosity of individuals and the Friends of Art, a philanthropic group of alumnae and College friends dedicated to the presentation of visual arts on campus. “Women Artists of the Twentieth Century” is a catalog surveying the work by female artists in the collection; it includes an introduction by Rebecca Massie Lane and an essay by Diane D. Moran. Please contact an art galleries staff member¬†for rights and reproduction information or to order a copy of the catalog.
