Shaping the Collection

In the 1930s, under the supervision of Doel Reed, Oklahoma State University began collecting a variety of works which is now known as the OSU Museum of Art's permanent collection. Since the opening in 2014, the permanent collection has grown to more than 5,000 works gifted to the museum.
