Gifts of Art

The Wellin Museum of Art’s permanent collection is an invaluable teaching resource for the College and the community. Donors can support the Museum’s growing collection through cash donations made toward the purchase of artwork or by offering a gift of art. As a teaching museum, the Museum can only accept gifts of art that support its mission — defined briefly as contemporary and historic works of art that support teaching within the Hamilton College curriculum. If you are interested in offering a gift of art please contact giftart@hamilton.edu.
