Artists are on site Wednesday–Sunday, 1–5 pm (until 8:45 pm on Fridays).

Power, Mystery and Cardboard

The Jolika Collection of New Guinea Art

The inaugural exhibition of the Jolika Collection that accompanied the opening of the new de Young in 2005 dramatically transformed the international profile of New Guinea art at the Museums, as well as its entire collection of Oceanic art. More than three hundred masterworks of New Guinea art are currently on view in the gallery.


Eskimo and Inuit Art from the Collection of Thomas G. Fowler

Abraham Anghik Ruben (b. 1950) Passage of Spirits (detail). Calcite, caribou antler, musk ox horn, and cotton fiber. 2007.21.292

Yua, Spirit of the Arctic: Eskimo and Inuit Art from the Collection of Thomas G. Fowler is a permanent installation in the Art of the Americas gallery that presents a selection of objects from the Arctic Circle. The collection was donated to the Museums by the late Thomas G. Fowler (1943–2006). Mr. Fowler visited Alaska many times during his life and amassed a comprehensive collection of works, the rarity and scope of which is unique in the Western United States.


The Lewis K. and Elizabeth M. Land Collection

Six miniature figures, 300 BC–AD 300. Earthenware. Gift of Lewis K. and Elizabeth M. Land 2009.1.106.1–6

Lewis K. Land (1904–1987) was a remarkable collector and businessman. From his early career in India and throughout a lifetime of wide-ranging interests, collecting became, for Land, a means of solidifying his varied intellectual pursuits. Geology and mineralogy were his first passions, but as years went by he became ever more fascinated with the objects and cultural histories of the ancient Americas.


Costume and Textile Arts

K. Lee Manuel, Tunic blouses 1964–1965

The Caroline and H. McCoy Jones Department of Textile Arts contains more than 13,000 textiles and costumes from traditions around the world. A remarkable range of techniques is represented, including loom-woven textiles; nonwoven fabrics, such as bark cloth, felt, and knitting; and objects embellished with beading and embroidery.
