Selections from the Worth B. Stottlemyer Collection


February 4, 2000 marked the permanent installation of works from the Worth B. Stottlemyer Collection.  This event represents the culmination of several year's work and inaugurates a new era for the visual arts at Juniata College.  Although many liberal arts colleges have galleries for temporary and traveling exhibitions, few have a permanent collection and the space to exhibit, study, and conserve it.  The establishment and installation of the Stottlemyer collection places the Juniata College Museum of Art among the best of the liberal arts college museums in the Mid-Atlantic region.  Highlights from the collection include paintings by Hudson River School artists, portrait miniatures, as well as Old Master and nineteenth-century prints. American artists include James Abbott McNeill Whistler, Asher B. Durand, Arthur Fitzwilliam Tait and Jervis McEntee. Additional selections from the Museum's diverse holdings will be installed in future years to complement the Stottlemyer Collection.
