Learn About the Collection

Only a small portion of the museum’s permanent collection is on view at any time, so a variety of tools are available to help you explore the works of art in the Nasher’s collection, whether currently on view or in storage.

Browse the Nasher Museum collection.

Information about art in a range of media, styles, periods, and cultures can be found at our website promoting visual literacy: How Do You Look?
