Art History, Moving Image
Founded in 1959, the Colby College Museum of Art in Waterville has rapidly risen to become one of the more exceptional academic art museums in the country. This museum’s 110,000 square feet of space is divided into four wings, each with its own design features that provide unique advantages in the exhibition of works of art. The museum’s impressive permanent collection includes American, European and Asian art. American Heritage Collection is comprised of primitive paintings, watercolors and drawings. Holdings of significant 20th-century works by American artists feature those who lived or worked in Maine. Paintings and works on paper by John Marin represent a substantial survey of Marin’s career. An entire wing of the museum is devoted to the paintings, cut-outs and drawings by Alex Katz. The museum grounds feature the sculpture of Richard Serra and Sol LeWitt, who are among the luminaries of contemporary art.
