The C.N. Gorman Museum Collections


Shelley Niro, Surrender, Nothing, Always, 2004

The permanent collections have grown alongside the C.N. Gorman Museum since its establishment in 1973 to include artworks from throughout North America as well as internationally. The Native American and First Nations collections emphasize the museum's commitment to acquiring contemporary fine art in a wide range of media recognizing the artistic canons in which Indigenous artists are working today.

The collection also reflects museum collaborations and communications with artists globally to include contemporary artworks from Aeteroa (New Zealand), Australia, Samoa, Bali, Peru, Central America and Spain.

Artworks from the collections are frequently featured in exhibitions at the C.N. Gorman Museum and in loans to other institutions, and play an important role in teaching and research. The collections are currently undergoing a digitization project in order to be available for online research on this website.
