Texas A&M University’s art collections reflect the diverse research, teaching and interpretive endeavors of the faculty, staff, and students. The majority of the collections are American art, with a strong emphasis on Texas art. However, as the collection has developed over the years primarily through donations, visitors can find other works ranging from Pre-Columbian pottery to 19th century German genre paintings. Additionally, a smaller collection of both original works and reproductions are available through the Campus Art Loan Program.
The Campus Art Loan Program operates under the jurisdiction of the University Art Galleries Department to provide art for departments and offices across campus. The goal of the program is to put art in public areas so that students and employees have access to it wherever they go on campus. The Campus Art Loan Program collection is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Offices requesting art must meet minimum requirements in terms of security and environmental factors. Loans are for 6 months and may be renewed.
