About the Collections' Records
This searchable database contains information about catalogued objects from the collections of seven museums in the Pioneer Valley of Massachusetts: the Mead Art Museum at Amherst College, Hampshire College Art Gallery, Historic Deerfield, Mount Holyoke College Art Museum, Joseph Allen Skinner Museum of Mount Holyoke College, the Smith College Museum of Art, and the University Museum of Contemporary Art at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. This is a working database and is constantly being updated as new information becomes available. Not all of the records have images, nor have they all been recently reviewed by curatorial staff; some may require revision. Also, please note that a small percentage of the museums' collections are not currently searchable online. Please contact the appropriate museum with your inquiries and feedback.
