The Michele and Donald D’Amour Museum of Fine Arts, established in 1933 and housed in an Art Deco style building, includes a comprehensive collection of American and European paintings, prints, watercolors, and sculpture as well as a large collection of Japanese prints and representative examples of drawing, furniture, metalwork, textiles, glass and ceramics. The Museum houses a comprehensive collection of European Art (French, Dutch, and Italian) and the Currier & Ives (active 1834-1907) collection, one of the largest holdings of lithographs in the nation.
The D’Amour Museum of Fine Arts’ Community Gallery is dedicated to showcasing the work of emerging and mid-career artists living in Western Massachusetts and Northern Connecticut. Exhibitions celebrate the rich and diverse talent of contemporary American artists living and working in our region. Artists are selected by jury and typically exhibit for a period of one year.
