Indiana University Art Museum.

Established in 1941, the Indiana University Art Museum in Bloomington, Indiana, USA, has become known as "one of the foremost university art museums in the country". The museum currently holds several internationally acclaimed collections, ranging from ancient gold jewelry and African masks to paintings by Claude Monet and Pablo Picasso. Holdings include over 30,000 objects representing nearly every art-producing culture throughout history.

History

The Indiana University Art Museum was designed as a commission by the board of trustees of Indiana University. Construction began in 1978 and ended in 1982.

Designed by I.M. Pei & Partners, the museum was created without a single right angle anywhere in the building's structure except for some stairs. Every wall, corner, and ceiling meets another point at some angle other than 90 degrees.

Works of Art

The museum's permanent collection includes works by Jackson Pollock, Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Auguste Rodin and Andy Warhol.
