Collections

Comprising over 550 works, CAM’s Permanent Collection is focused on contemporary fine art prints and original works in all media by Pacific Northwest artists. The Collection continues to grow through donation.

The fine art print collection contains many works by major American artists including Alexander Calder, Warrington Colescott, Red Grooms, Robert Rauschenberg, James Rosenquist, and Larry Rivers. The Collection was augmented in 1972-73 when 94 prints were purchased with support from the National Endowment for the Arts. Currently the Collection contains over 235 prints.

Since 1995, the Adopt an Artwork program has improved the condition of over 115 works. Anyone may choose to “adopt an artwork” by underwriting the cost of reframing or restoring a work from the Collection. Donors are acknowledged whenever the adopted works are exhibited.

Many of the works in the Collection can be viewed online. Click Here to Enter the Permanent Collection Online Gallery.

Access to works not online is possible by appointment by calling (541) 267-3901.
