The Colby College Museum of Art has an outstanding collection of American art from the early 18th century through the present day. The collection showcases important works by Mary Cassatt, John Singleton Copley, Marsden Hartley, Alex Katz, Maya Lin, Elizabeth Murray, Richard Serra, Kiki Smith, James McNeill Whistler, and Terry Winters.
In 2013, the Museum opened the Alfond-Lunder Family Pavilion in celebration of the arrival of The Lunder Collection. Now considered one of the best academic museums in the country, the Museum has a dynamic exhibitions schedule and educational program. Through scholarly, innovative, and creative programs, the Museum serves both as a cornerstone of a liberal arts education and as a cultural resource to Waterville residents and visitors to the state.
