The Fine Arts Collection at UC Davis

The Fine Arts Collection at UC Davis contains more than 5,000 objects. Founded as a collection of Old Master prints, it is now encyclopedic in scope, including notable holdings of antiquities, works on paper, and ceramics central to the history of UC Davis. There is a concurrent community-wide effort to grow and strengthen the depth of the Fine Arts Collection. 

Established in 1964, today the collection contains more than 5,000 works from antiquities to contemporary art. Areas of special focus include:

  • Old Master Prints
  • East Asian Prints
  • Ceramics
  • UC Davis faculty and alumni
