The Davis Museum is home to distinguished permanent collections from around the globe; holdings include paintings, sculptures, works on paper, photographs, and decorative objects, from antiquity to the contemporary moment. Dynamic gallery presentations and richly varied temporary exhibitions are designed to engage visitors in looking anew at the visual arts, and enhance the Davis’s role as a vital campus resource for cross-disciplinary teaching and study.

The Art Department has a close relationship with the Davis, making extensive use of their collection to teach in the direct presence of art objects. Curators and staff at the Davis provide important lectures and tours. Art Department faculty also give public lectures in the museum galleries. The Davis works with Studio Art faculty on occasional faculty art exhibitions, giving the College community an opportunity to fully experience the work of our artist professors. Wellesley College students may engage with the Davis as visitors, as student workers/docents, as summer interns, and as members of the Davis Museum Student Advisory Committee (DMSAC).

Please see the Davis Museum's website for the latest information on hours and access.
