MAM's Permanent Collection
Our continually evolving collection has been widely recognized for its quality and depth since the Museum’s founding in 1914. It features work by a range of artists from across the United States and Native America dating to the eighteenth to the twenty-first centuries. Highlights include the work of Montclair-based George Inness (1825–1894); basketry, regalia, and beadwork; modern art, and more. Works from the permanent collection regularly rotate in our galleries.
