Love this collection. It has a wonderful history in Tuscaloosa. The collection was Jack Warner's and much larger at one time. Located at North River Yacht Club, then near a hotel in North River Residential area. Now the collection is tucked away at "The Westervelt Company" headquarters. A very impressive Japanese style building and grounds. Hardly any visitors. It takes about an hour 1/2 to see the available display. You can possibly arrange to see more of the collection (below main floor) prior to going. The historical, primitive, Bierstadt, and western/Indian paintings are absolutely lovely. You can stand close and enjoy every brush stroke. I don't know no visitors there, but truly it is a wonderful remainder of the larger collection which was partly sold off by heirs of Warner/Westervelt. I could not find it on Google but was familiar with location. Stop by and soak up some history and wonderful artworks.

I've lived only about 2 miles from this place for months and never knew it existed until this week. Glad I found it. Free. Ask about the postcard tour. None of the paintings have any info by them other than the name of the painting and the artist. The postcard tour gives you a little more info on just a few of the paintings. The audio tour on cell phones is pretty dry, so postcard tour is a step up.

Tuscaloosa Museum of Art. Calling it an art museum is a misnomer, as it’s really an art collection in the Westerveld Company headquarters. But it’s free, and the collection, while small, has some good and some interesting paintings, many by known artists. Highlights include a Hopper where he painted a group of Union soldiers. Perhaps half of the collection is western American art, i. e. indians, trappers, western landscapes, several Frederic Remingtons and the like. The company campus is also interesting. It consists of four buildings that are Japanese style, likewise the landscaping of the campus. The center of the campus, between the buildings, is supposedly modeled after a garden in Kyoto. Absolutely worth a visit.

On entering you become the beneficiary of a rare and insightful art collector with virtually unlimited funds. Jack Warner had the vision to collect over his lifetime the best in historical art about the United States and the Westward Development bracketing the Civil War. Jack is an art scholar of the best repute and dedicated his life to selecting the best and showcasing it in his hometown. The historical and natural art rival the museums in NYC, DC and even London. I have been on numerous occasions and stay for several hours at a time. What a gift that Jack Warner gave the people of the United States! I cannot comprehend the millions of dollars that the collection is worth today, but it is truly a National Treasure right here in Tuscaloosa!
