The Addison Gallery of American Art, established in 1930 on the campus of Phillips Academy, has one of the most important collections of American art in the country. Its collection of more than 12,000 objects began with major works by the most prominent American artists of the past - among them Gilbert Charles Stuart, John Singleton Copley, Benjamin West, Thomas Eakins, Winslow Homer, James McNeill Whistler and John Singer Sargent. In the ensuing 60 years, aggressive purchasing and generous gifts in all media have added works by such artists as Alexander Calder, Hans Hofmann, Georgia O'Keeffe and Frank Stella, as well as comprehensive photographic holdings representing Walker Evans, Eadweard Muybridge, Berenice Abbott, Robert Frank and Hollis Frampton, among others. The Addison Gallery of American Art is a department of Phillips Academy, located at the corner of Route 28 and Chapel Avenue, Andover, MA. Please see the museum's website for hours and admission fees.
