Art is SO much more than just paintings - it comes in all forms, from paint, to drawing, sculpture, and textiles to name a few - and it's also an invaluable insight into history and culture from all around the world!
The collection at the Hood Museum of Art features nearly 65,000 works of art and artifacts from a broad range of cultures and historical periods, representing a remarkable cultural and educational experience for all who visit.
There are important holdings of Native American, European, American, African and Melanesian art, including an incredibly significant collection of indigenous Australian contemporary art, AND ninth-century BCE Assyrian stone reliefs!
