The Daura Museum of Art collects, preserves, studies, exhibits, and interprets works of art for the benefit of the University of Lynchburg curriculum and for the enrichment of the general public. The collection consists of significant works of art by American and international artists, the ethnographic arts, and other works that exemplify methods and use of materials.
The Collection is divided into the following categories: World Cultures, with emphasis on Africa and Asia, American Outsider Art, and 19th Century through Contemporary American and European Artists. Emphasis is placed on painting, sculpture, fine prints, and photographs. A second focus is placed on art that reflects themes, methods, media, and materials of various times and locations, thus providing additional academic resources.
