Permanent Collection

The permanent collection comprises over five thousand objects, including the Mary Jack collection of Inuit Art, nearly one hundred works by the muralist Milton Bancroft, an important collection of folk and native American art, and important works by faculty and alumni of IUP. 

The collection is housed in the recently-renovated Eicher building and includes offices and facilities to research, conserve, and manage the collection.

One of the highlights of the museum’s permanent collection is the "Modonna and Child". Although somewhat rigid in its modeling, this Madonna and child project a serenity in their facial expression and postures. It is likely this originally formed part of a larger altar carving.
