Seeking Inspiration in Art Across Time and Media

Yale University Art Gallery

The Yale University Art Gallery is dedicated to serving Yale students, faculty, alumni, and the wider public. At the heart of the gallery's work is its permanent collection from artist John Tumbull, who in 1832 donated more than 100 of his paintings of the American Revolution and gave rise to the establishment of the first art museum on a college campus. In the decades since, the collection has grown to include nearly 300,000 objects from around the world. Beyond holding and protecting this repository of impressive art, the gallery stimulates active learning and creative inquiry through carefully curated exhibitions and expansive educational programming.
