The Permanent Art Collections at Pacific University represent contemporary and traditional art-making. As an extension of the University’s Exhibition Program and Art Department, the Permanent Art Collections represent a breadth of artistic disciplines, including: painting, drawing, sculpture, ceramics, photography, metalwork, stained glass, textiles, and printmaking.

In addition to being a valued aesthetic asset to the University, the collections function as a tool for teaching and research and represent Pacific's dedication to the arts and culture.
