LaSalle University Art Museum
The La Salle University Art Museum began in 1965 as a small study collection for the university’s students. It opened its doors to the general public in 1975 and now serves students, alumni and the greater Philadelphia community. Since its founding, the Art Museum has seen tremendous growth and now houses nearly 5000 works of art. While the collection primarily focuses on Western art, from c. 1400 to the present, it also has smaller special collections of African Art, Asian art, Pre-Colombian and Greek ceramics. The Art Museum is laid out in a series of period rooms and is located on the lower level of Olney Hall, the University’s principle Arts and Sciences building on the main campus.
