Housed in a post modern style Atrium and Sculpture Court connecting three wings, including a new exhibition wing, a former Carnegie Library building, and an antebellum mansion, the Museum features works from its permanent collection in combination with exhibitions on loan from major American museums, galleries, and important regional collections. Unique to OMFA is the Stained Glass Gallery, presenting a permanent installation of sixteen turn-of-the-century stained glass windows in 25-foot light towers crafted by the internationally recognized German-American glass maker Emil Frei. Its decorative arts wing is located in the restored antebellum John Hampden Smith House. Collections include 19th- and 20th-century American, English, and French paintings drawings, graphics, and sculpture; 14th- through 18th-century American, English, and Asian decorative arts: contemporary American art; 19th-century stained glass: 20th-century Appalachian folk art; and late 20th-century studio art glass. Highlights include works by Edgar Degas. Thomas Lawrence. Charles Willson Peale, and Frank Duveneck.
