Great to see the UM collection expanding! "No doubt the troves of visitors came for a rare glimpse of the extensive permanent collection, which was established in 1946 under Vincent Hartgen, a member of the art faculty and curator of the collection. Since 1946, the museum has amassed 3,800 works of fine art, with a focus on contemporary art dating from 1945 to present. Additionally, the museum maintains a rich collection predating that period. Among the artists represented in the collection are Berenice Abbott, Kathe Kollwitz, Andy Warhol, Edouard Manet, Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso."
