A Note on the Collections
The Fleming Museum of Art opened in 1931, bringing under one roof campus collections of fine art, archaeology, natural history, and more. Today, the Fleming boasts a global collection that exceeds 24,000 objects spanning from antiquity to the present. Especially within the founding collections, many objects entered the Museum’s care through European and American colonial pathways. Some objects are known, or believed, to have been acquired through unfair trade practices, removed without permission, or taken during military activities or colonial projects. Research into these objects is ongoing, if you have any information or questions regarding specific works, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A Note on the Online Gallery
Originally published in 2020 to provide online access to objects for academic courses, Museum staff and student interns continue to add and update entries regularly. We are working on providing more high-resolution images and improving the recorded data to better reflect our current cataloging standards.
