Print Room

The Jansma Family Works on Paper Study provides public access to the museum’s collections of prints, drawings, and photographs. These include works of and European origin dating from the fifteenth century to the present.

Because works on paper are sensitive to the damaging effects of light they are shown only for brief periods at a time. Works on paper that are not currently on view in the galleries may be examined in the Study Room upon request. Classes from local schools and universities are encouraged to schedule visits to the Study Room. (Please contact Associate Curator Cindy Buckner at

The study room also houses a library of reference books and catalogues raisonnés as well as an index to the Museum’s collection of prints, drawings, and photographs.

The Study Room is located on the second floor of the Museum, adjacent to the works on paper exhibition galleries and the library. It is open to the public Tuesday through Saturday, 1:00 to 4:00 pm.
