The Hood Museum of Art welcomes visiting researchers to explore the collection and add to the scholarship on works in the museum’s care.
Comprised of nearly 65,000 objects, the Hood’s collection includes:
- large reliefs from ancient Assyria;
- ancient Greek and Roman coins;
- European and American painting;
- Native American, African, and Oceanic art and artifacts;
- modern and contemporary art, including a significant collection of Aboriginal Australian paintings; and
- over twenty thousand drawings, prints, watercolors, and photographs.
The Hood’s public events include many lectures, gallery talks, symposia, and receptions over the course of the year.
