About the Permanent Collection

 

The Wichita Falls Museum of Art has an outstanding collection of more than 3000 artworks. The Permanent Art Collection focuses on American art of the past and present. A majority of the artworks in the collection are works on paper including original lithographs, etchings, mezzotints, drawings, watercolors, pastels, and photography. The Collection also includes paintings and sculptures.

The Museum’s permanent collection includes artworks on paper by American artists ranging from a 1677 print by John Foster to major works by nineteenth and twentieth-century masters Jasper Johns, Jackson Pollock, Leonard Baskin, Andy Warhol, Winslow Homer, Mary Cassatt, John Sloan, and many other contemporary artists including Alice Briggs, Judy Youngblood, Mary McCleary, Ron Adams, and many others. A large majority of the art in the permanent collection was acquired from 1967 until 2005, prior to the merger of the Museum with Midwestern State University. Selections from the Museum’s permanent collection are exhibited frequently in the Museum’s gallery.
