In its first decade, the Philip and Muriel Berman Museum of Art at Ursinus College has offered a diversity of exhibitions and programming which have educated, influenced, and served as a cultural resource for the community in the Tri-state region.  In addition to an outstanding permanent collection which includes 19th and 20th century American paintings by the Peale family, Walter Elmer Schofield, and Walter Baum, Japanese prints, South East Asian antiquities, an extensive collection of Pennsylvania German artifacts and the largest private collection of sculpture by British artist Lynn Chadwick, the entire Ursinus campus is  home to over forty (40) contemporary outdoor sculptures.

Exhibitions have featured the paintings and prints of Francoise Gilot and Peter Sculthorpe, the sculpture of Gaston Lachaise, Henry Moore and George Anthonisen, and archaeological treasures from Israel.  In addition, several one-person exhibitions of work by contemporary regional artists are a regular feature of our programming.

With over 30,000 visitors annually, the Berman Museum has enriched the fabric of the community and redefined liberal learning at Ursinus College.  Its exhibitions, publications and efforts by the staff have received national recognition through a network of professional organizations.  Our museum professionals remain committed to providing a positive, informative and enjoyable experience for both the novice and the art aficionado.
