Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art


Cornell University's Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art in Ithaca, NY, is the home to the school's art collection. The museum's permanent collection boasts more than 30,000 works of art, including American and European prints, African sculpture, and Asian artifacts. Among the highlights of the collection are Albrecht Durer's three "master prints" from 1513-1514, Henri Matisse's "Jazz" series, and Georgia O'Keeffe's Pink Hills. In addition to its permanent collections, the Johnson Museum of Art presents special exhibitions. Recent subjects for exhibits have included Frank Lloyd Wright art glass and Australian aboriginal paintings. The Two Naked Guys appropriately situated near two statues of nude serves up pastries, coffee, sandwiches, soup, and salads. The museum also offers events such as concerts, lectures, workshops, and receptions, most of which are free the public. The I.M.-Pei designed building has views of the Cornell campus and Ithaca, as well as Cayuga Lake. The Johnson Museum of Art is about to begin a major expansion, which will add about 16,000 square feet of space to the building and is slated to open in 2011.
