Description of Collection: 

The University Art Museum maintains both a permanent collection of twentieth-century works of art on paper and a collection of site-specific outdoor sculpture. The sculpture collection began in 1965 with an International Sculpture Symposium and continues to expand, making the Long Beach campus of only three large public sculpture sites in Southern California. The museum has archival material related to the International Sculpture Symposium and artist files related to the museum’s collections and exhibitions.
