Welcome to the Martin Museum of Art

For the past thirty years, the stewardship and mission of the Martin Museum of Art has been one of education and service. We are committed to bringing outstanding art exhibitions, speakers, and guest artists to Baylor University and to our Central Texas community.

The museum serves as a valuable teaching tool for students and faculty. Exhibitions complement the courses of art history and studio art taught within the Department of Art.

The permanent collection consists of approximately 1300 objects and represents a wide variety of art that has been donated to or purchased by Baylor University. The collection contains artwork by such well-known artists as Robert Rauschenberg, Kathe Kollwitz, Francisco de Goya, and Edouard-Leon Cortes. Included in the collection are approximately 300 paintings representing famous watercolor artists such as George Post, Phil Dike, Edgar Whitney, and John Marin.

The Martin Museum of Art has many treasures to share and we look forward to having you visit!
