Year Founded:
    1941

Description:
   The Museum has developed a unique identity in Ancient Art, Asian Art (Chinese, Japanese, Indian & Tibetan), 19th & early 20th Century French, English & American Art, International Modernism, Works on Paper, Photography, & Contemporary Art.
    Influenced by the community as a whole and by individual collectors of major importance, the holdings of the Museum have taken on a character specific to this institution.
    The Museum's strong education and outreach program is multi-faceted: docent-led tours for children and adults, classroom slide talks, family days at the Museum, teacher workshops, lectures, adult education classes, and studio art classes for all ages at the Ridley-Tree Education Center at McCormick House.
    Much of the educational programming at the Museum is carried out by docents, who together volunteer more than 10,000 hours of service each year. Before they become "the voices of the Museum," the docents spend a year in training, receiving rigorous art history and public speaking instruction. Docents who have been with the Museum more than five years may specialize in a certain area of expertise, such as Asian or French art.
