The permanent collection of the Hunterdon Art Museum concentrates on works on paper. The growing collection emphasizes prints, but also includes drawings, paintings and photographs.

Dating from the 1930s to the present, the collection consists of work by internationally recognized artists as well as artists from the region. Highlights include prints by Mark DiSuvero, Philip Guston, Alex Katz, and Ad Reinhardt.

Purchase prizes from the Museum’s Annual National Juried Print Exhibition, which was held for more than fifty years, make up the Anne Steele Marsh Collection, which is part of the permanent collection.

In addition to works on paper, the Museum’ s collection includes the sculpture New Direction by Tom Otterness.  The bronze is installed on the Museum’s terrace.  A second sculpture, Tree by Toshiko Takaezu, is in the Museum’s lobby.
