Housed in a National Register building (a converted dining hall), the Museum traces its roots to the donation to the University of his art collection by former University President Beach. His bequest included works by Hassam. Ranger. Lawson, and Wiggins. Since then, the collection has grown to include works by Cassatt, Benton, Bellows, Marsh, Rembrandt Peale, Braque, and Burne-Jones, now totaling some 4,000 objects. Also of possible interest on campus is the Atrium Gallery (875 Coventry Road: Monday-Fnday, 8:30-4:30; 486-3930).
