The Baker Museum, Southwest Florida's first full-scale art museum, opened to the public as Naples Museum of Art in 2000. The three-story, 30,000-square-foot museum features 15 galleries show-casing a variety of works by acclaimed artists from around the world. The Baker Museum is a division of Artis-Naples.
Among the permanent holdings of the museum are a major collection of about 300 paintings and drawings by American masters from 1900-1955 and one of the largest collections of 20th-century Mexican art in the Southern United States. The museum has organized and presented a number of important exhibitions, several of which have received national and international attention. These include exhibitions of work by Andrew Wyeth, Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Helen Frankenthaler, Victor Vasarely, Hans Hofmann, Alice Neel and others.
Built at a cost of $10.6 million, the museum features a glass-dome conservatory, a 10-foot-wide icicle chandelier designed by world-renowned glass sculptor Dale Chihuly and entrance doors created by celebrated metal artist Albert Paley.
The Baker Museum is located at 5833 Pelican Bay Boulevard, Naples, FL 34108-2740. For hours and admission fees please see the Museum's website.
