The Daum collects, preserves, interprets, and exhibits modern and contemporary works of art. It houses nine exhibition galleries, on three levels, with a combined area of 9,300 square-feet. The Daum sheds light on the stimulating complexity of contemporary art. The museum offers a temporary-exhibition series that changes three times per year.

Exhibitions range from monographic surveys of nationally recognized artists to group shows that explore a shared theme to regional artists who merit wider appreciation. The museum’s permanent collection includes diverse paintings, drawings, prints, works in clay, and sculpture created since the mid-20th century.

Exhibits feature works by Andy Warhol, Dale Chihuly, Helen Frankenthaler, Robert Motherwell, Peter Voulkos, Louise Bourgeois and Betty Woodman.

Located on the campus of State Fair Community College.
