Welcome to the Mead!
We hope this online portal to all that the Mead offers will inspire you to visit Amherst College’s art museum soon. Whether you come to the Mead regularly or are planning your first trip, we hope every visit to our galleries will provide you with something enjoyable, engaging, and perhaps even surprising.
The Mead’s collection is wide-ranging, with works to satisfy every artistic taste, from monumental Assyrian palace sculpture to enchanting landscapes by artists of the Hudson River School to challenging creations of the Russian avant-garde.
Massachusetts and New England have no shortage of excellent museums, but the Mead is special in many ways. Its diverse collection, dynamic staff, and college setting combine to form a learning laboratory where exploration, inquiry, and public engagement foster new ideas and insights every day.
Our warmest welcome to all, and see you soon at the Mead!
Pamela J. Russell, Interim Director, and the entire Mead staff
