Carnegie Museum of Art

From the Carnegie Museum of Art website:

"Carnegie Museum of Art is arguably the first museum of contemporary art in the United States, collecting the 'Old Masters of tomorrow' since the inception of the Carnegie International in 1896. Today, the museum is one of the most dynamic major art institutions in America. Our collection of more than 30,000 objects features a broad spectrum of visual arts...

Through our programming, exhibitions, and publications, we frequently explore the role of art and artists in confronting key social issues of our time, combining and juxtaposing local and global perspectives. With our unique history and resources, we strive to become a leader in defining the role of art museums for the 21st century. The 20th-century and 21st-first century collections include...significant works of American craft in ceramic, glass, and wood."
