Really enjoyed the selection, but what's particularly strong about the Maier is the descriptions next to each picture which really help the viewer to contextualize and think about what s/he is looking at.

This is a small museum owned by Randolph College. The collection is impressive although some of the finest works were sold to maintain the college. There are some gems here by well known 19th and 20th century artists--Dove, Cassatt, O'Keeffe.. Definitely worth the stop.

The Maier Museum is owned and operated by Randolph College and supports the college's art collection. Regular rotating curated exhibits occur in conjunction with curricular offerings, but are easily accessible and wonderfully educational for everyone. The permanent exhibits are remarkably diverse.
