The Hofstra University Museum has contributed approximately 200 images to the Artstor Digital Library. The selection primarily includes Japanese prints, paintings and decorative arts, ancient Chinese objects, African sculpture, and some contemporary art.
Integral to the academic mission of Hofstra University, the Hofstra University Museum advances knowledge and understanding through experiences with works of art from diverse cultures. The Museum’s mission is achieved through collection acquisition and preservation, exhibitions and interpretive resources.
The Hofstra University Museum’s permanent collection is composed of more than 5,000 objects spanning 35 centuries of human history, with works of art and cultural artifact representing six continents. The collections include major works by American and European artists in painting, sculpture, photography, prints and other works on paper, along with Asian, Oceanic, African, and Pre-Columbian art.
