Rembrandt Van Rijn, "Head of Artist" etching detail, ca.1630, color modified, Mulvane Art Museum permanent collection

The Mulvane Art Museum fosters excellence and innovation in collections-related research, interpretation, publication, and conservation. The museum introduces new ways to curate and present art while positioning our collection and exhibitions as a unique resource for the Mulvane, the University, the state, and the region.

The Mulvane Art Museum houses a collection of more than 5,000 objects from around the world including paintings, prints, drawings, sculpture, photographs and decorative art. While international in scope, the Museum’s collection is focused on works by artists from Kansas and the Moutain/Plains, and has a concentration in American Art of the 20th century.

The Museum recently launched a searchable web database for the permanent collection.  The process of loading individual object records is in the initial stages.  We encourage you to search the database, but we ask you recognize the inventory is at this time incomplete.
