American Painting & Sculpture

American painting and sculpture has always been the Allentown Art Museum’s primary focus, and we have worked to build a collection that represents American art from the mid-eighteenth century to the present. This collection generally features art and artists of Eastern Pennsylvania but includes other regions as well. Our American painting and sculpture collection now numbers more than five hundred works. A selection of about sixty works of art spanning two hundred fifty years is rotated periodically in our American galleries.
