Permanent Collection



The permanent collection at Rivier University is an eclectic gathering of works by both historically recognized artists and craftspersons and other distinguished practitioners of the visual arts. It includes paintings, prints, drawings, photographs, sculptures, pottery, and works in a variety of mixed and new media. Some pieces are housed at specific locations on campus; others are periodically shown at the Art Gallery. In addition to enhancing the visual appeal and identity of Rivier University, the permanent collection supports the University’s academic offerings, particularly in art and art history, and enriches the lives of both the campus population and the surrounding community.

The University welcomes new acquisitions of art. Benefactors wishing to arrange for a gift are invited to contact the Director of the Art Gallery at Rivier University.
