Colby College Museum of Art

Founded in 1959 and now comprising four wings, more than 7,000 works, and more than 28,000 square feet of exhibition space, the Colby College Museum of Art has built a significant permanent collection that specializes in American and contemporary art. The Museum is part of the Bixler Art and Music Center, a building named in honor of President J. Seelye Bixler (1942-1960) in recognition of his visionary support for the arts at Colby.
The Museum serves both as a teaching resource for Colby College and as an active cultural institution for the residents of Maine and visitors to the state.
In the fall of 2011, the Museum broke ground on the Alfond-Lunder Family Pavilion, a 26,000-square-foot addition that will accommodate its growing permanent collection as well as its education and outreach program and art studios.
