Recent acquisitions at the American Art Museum

Some of our recent Acquisitions: Lichtenstein, Christo, and Paik

The Smithsonian American Art Museum's collection, which includes artworks in all media—from painting and sculpture to film and media art, photographs, folk art and contemporary craft—reveals key aspects of America's rich artistic and cultural history from the colonial period to today. In recent years, the museum's acquisition efforts have focused on strengthening its modern and contemporary collections. Sign up to receive email updates about exhibitions and acquisitions.
