Its collection includes selections of Abstract expressionism, American Impressionism, the Chicago Imagists, Overbeck art pottery, Pop art, Regionalism, the Ashcan School, and Western art (art from the American West).[1] Artworks in the collection include works by Norman Rockwell, Hans Hofmann, Edward Moran, Roger Brown, Grant Wood, Arthur Bowen Davies, Ralph Albert Blakelock and many others.
