The Brauer Museum of Art is home to a collection of 19th- and 20th-century American art, world religious art, and Midwestern regional art. It is located in the Valparaiso University Center for the Arts (VUCA) on the campus of Valparaiso University in Valparaiso, Indiana, US. Prior to the museum’s opening, the university’s collection was housed and displayed within several buildings across campus. It was named the Brauer Museum of Art in 1996 to honor the collection’s long-time director and curator, Richard H. W. Brauer.
The collection of the museum includes landscape paintings by Frederic Edwin Church, Asher B. Durand, John F. Kensett and largest known collection of works by painter Junius R. Sloan. Large late 19th-century paintings by T. Alexander Harrison and Elizabeth Nourse; Impressionist paintings by Karl Anderson, Childe Hassam and Robert Reid, and urban realist paintings by William Glackens and John Sloan also comprise some of the Brauer Museum's permanent collection of over 2,700 pieces.
The museum also holds early modernist paintings by John Marin, Walt Kuhn and Georgia O'Keeffe. Other contemporary works include artists such as Elaine de Kooning, Ed Paschke, Chuck Close, Diego Lasansky, Dale Chihuly, Frank Dudley John Himmelfarb, and Ansel Adams.
