The Earlham Art Collection is a wonderful resource for faculty and students, providing direct access to works of art for exhibitions, classes, and research. Informally begun in 1882 with the donation of a painting by Quaker artist Marcus Mote, the Collection has grown into a uniquely diverse teaching collection.

The Earlham Art Collection supports the mission of Earlham College by collecting, preserving and exhibiting works of art and craft. Strengths of the Collection include works on paper, Asian art, art related to Quakerism, Earlham College, and Indiana,  and indigenous art and artifacts from around the world.
