A note to our visitors: The Woodhouse Family Gallery—which includes collection favorites from Georgia O’Keeffe, Marsden Hartley, and Alfred Stieglitz, among others—is currently closed to visitors while the University’s Facilities Management staff repair a leak in the building’s roof. For their protection, the artworks have been temporarily stored elsewhere while the repairs are underway. The University is committed to repairing the leak quickly, so we can reopen the gallery as soon as possible. Check in with us on Facebook for updates about the reopening of the Woodhouse Family Gallery.

Thanks for your patience. You can expect these favorites to be back on public view soon! In the meantime, we invite you view The Persistence of MingeiState Your Intentions, and She Who Lives on the Road to War.
