Ethnographic Collection

The collections of the Hood Museum of Art are diverse and wide-ranging in these areas. Number nearly 15,000 objects, the collections include significant works of visual culture, most notably from Africa, Oceania, and Native America. The museum's holdings of 1,500 African art objects, recently augmented by several major acquisitions, include works from all regions of the continent. The holdings of Oceania, augmented by the Patten and Franklin Family collections, number nearly 2,400 objects and include important works of art from every major geographic region of Papua New Guinea. The artistic and cultural traditions of Native America are represented by a collection of nearly 11,000 objects, which is especially strong in pottery, basketry, and beadwork.
