Maryland Artist Collection

View holdings of one of the largest collections of Maryland art in the state.

UMGC's Maryland Artist Collection is one of the largest and most comprehensive collections of 20th-century Maryland art in the state. Begun in 1978, the collection includes paintings, sculptures, prints, and photographs. The walls of UMGC's stateside headquarters in Adelphi offer the university an opportunity to celebrate and showcase the work of Maryland artists, and the rapid growth of the collection is a testament to the generosity and vitality of the many people supporting the visual arts in Maryland.

Among the highlights of the Maryland Artist Collection are large bodies of works by Baltimore artists Herman MarilGladys Goldstein, Selma L. Oppenheimer, and Raoul Middleman. The collection also has substantial holdings by artists Sy Gresser, William “Bill” Taylor, and Reini Maters. In 2010, UMGC opened the Leroy Merritt Center for the Art of Joseph Sheppard, a 5,500-square-foot structure housing permanent exhibitions of sculptures, paintings, and drawings by Maryland artist Joseph Sheppard. The center also features a study center with more than 2,000 art books.
