Recent Acquisitions

The UWMAC’s acquisition policy emphasizes works that artistically and historically amplify and reinforce the fine and decorative works of art already in the UWMAC and reflect its mission and goals. UWMAC will continue its ongoing efforts to build relationships with both local and national collectors through loans and gifts. The recent group of acquisitions represents the continuation of the UWM Art Collection’s ongoing pedagogical mission to the student body, faculty, staff, and community, as well as expand and diversify its permanent collection through gifts.
