About the Tuscaloosa Museum of Art:
The Tuscaloosa Museum of Art displays approximately 1000 works of fine and decorative arts. The collection was amassed by Jack Warner, over several decades, as investments for Gulf States Paper, now the Westervelt Company. Operated by 501 (c) foundation the museum was asked by the Westervelt Company to share its collection with the community to promote a better understanding of the arts and connecting to all areas of education. Considered to be one of the greatest private collections of American Art, it is truly a treasure within the community.
Featuring such artists as:
John Singer Sargent; George Luks; Edward Potthast; Andrew Wyeth; Jamie Wyeth; Edward Hicks; James A.M. Whistler; Albert Bierstadt; Basil Ede; Duncan Phyfe and Charles Lannieur.
It is the motivation and inspiration of the Tuscaloosa Museum of Art, to foster a sense of community while promoting and disseminating an understanding of fine and decorative arts.
