Daum Museum of Contemporary Art

(college contemporary art museum)

from website - "The Daum Museum of Contemporary Art opened in 2002 and is located on the State Fair Community College campus in Sedalia, Missouri. The Daum features a diverse permanent collection and offers three exhibition cycles each year and up to 15 exhibitions. The museum, which includes nine exhibition galleries on three levels with a combined area of 9,300 square feet, was designed by Gunn & Smith Architects of St. Louis, Missouri.

The heart of the Daum is the permanent collection comprised of abstract paintings, drawings, prints, ceramics, and sculpture created since the mid-20th century. The museum's namesake, Dr. Harold F. Daum, a retired radiologist and avid art collector, gave life to the museum by donating his 300-piece art collection and funds toward its construction. The permanent collection has grown to over 1,500 objects through gifts and selected purchases. It features significant works by Andy Warhol, Ed Ruscha, Helen Frankenthaler, Robert Motherwell, Peter Voulkos, Betty Woodman, Louise Bourgeois, Linda Connor, and Ansel Adams."
