The Waskowmium is a collection of artworks in northern Vermont, USA,[1] and "housed at two residences and four other spaces that are exclusively devoted to storing and displaying the collection".[2]

It was founded by Mark S. Waskow. As of 2007, it was reportedly "one of the largest private collections of artworks in [Vermont], [with] a total of 8,000 pieces, much of it produced by Vermonters".[1] It notably includes paintings by Marc Awodey and drawings by Ed Koren.[1]

Media heavily represented in this collection are works on paper, artists' books and other printed materials, collage, assemblage, constructions and works by Vermont-based artists. An archive of materials relating to the contemporary art scene in Vermont and its chronology is also maintained.[citation needed]
