The Hunter offers amazing architecture, a stunning permanent collection and exciting temporary exhibitions.
The Hunter Museum focuses on American art from the Colonial period to the present day. The variety of the collection inside is reflected by the architecture of the museum's exterior. The museum is housed in an historical mansion, a modern 1970s era building and a sleek, contemporary building of steel and glass.
The museum's collection includes paintings, works on paper, sculpture, furniture and contemporary studio glass covering a diverse range of styles and periods. A few of the well-known artists whose work is representative in the Hunter include Thomas Cole, Fitzhugh Lane, Winslow Homer, Mary Cassatt, Childe Hassam, Robert Henri, John Marin, Thomas Hart Benton, Helen Frankenthaler, Louise Nevelson, Jack Beal, George Segal, Duane Hanson, Robert Rauschenberg and Andy Warhol.
