Overlooking beautiful Lake Virginia, the George D. and Harriet W. Cornell Fine Arts Museum offers visitors a sophisticated, intimate viewing experience in one of the Southeast’s most innovative college museums. Original and traveling exhibitions feature outstanding works of art for all tastes, from the early Renaissance to cutting-edge contemporary. A broad range of drawings, paintings, prints, and sculpture from the permanent collection includes works by contemporary masters Lucien Freud and Alex Katz; nineteenth-century American artists Albert Bierstadt and Winslow Homer; and Old Master painters Tintoretto and Tiepolo, among others. Public talks, films, and special programming offer the public and campus a stimulating year-round agenda. The Museum’s award-winning education programs reach over 6,500 students annually. And the Museum Shop offers an array of jewelry and objects d’art based upon the collection, as well as note cards and art books for children and adults.
