The permanent collection of the Weatherspoon Art Museum is considered to be one of the foremost of its kind in the Southeast. It represents all major art movements from the beginning of the 20th century to the present.
Embellished with natural plantings and cozy seating, the Weatherspoon’s brick-paved courtyard features 7000 sq ft for the display of sculpture from the permanent collection. It is easily accessible from the adjacent visitor parking.
Many 20th + 21st-century artist question the concept of originality and have increasingly borrowed imagery from popular culture, mass media, and art history. Conflicting social, political, philosophical, and artistic ideas abound as well.
