About the Saint Mary's College Museum of Art and Hearst Art Gallery
Since 1997 Resource Library has published articles and essays relating to exhibitions at Saint Mary's College's Hearst Art Gallery. In 2011 the College announced a new home for the Hearst Art Gallery and the William Keith Gallery with the establishment of the Saint Mary's College Museum of Art (SMCMoA). Exhibition space increased by fifty percent with the addition of two galleries complementing the Keith and Hearst galleries. The Hearst Art Gallery, which was founded in 1977 with a grant from the Hearst Foundation, remains a primary exhibition space for the museum.
Saint Mary's art collection began with a few Keith paintings in the early 20th century and by 2011 had expanded to nearly 4,500 works of art, including its comprehensive Keith collection; early ceramics; Roman coins; African; Asian and Oceanic ethnographic objects; religious statuary; Russian icons and modern California art.
Museum hours and admission fees are available on the Gallery's website.
