I came for a special exhibit and didnt have time to visit all of the permanent collection. Nonetheless, I was impressed and will return. It is a small collection, but it has impressive South Asian and European pieces.

As other reviewers have said, this is one of the most amazing university art museums. (I wouldn't call it "small", though, unless you're comparing it to the largest museums in the biggest cities.) I especially enjoyed the huge frescoes by Diego Rivera. A helpful docent...More
