Established in 1953 [as the Treat Gallery], the [Olin Art] Museum maintains a small but significant permanent collection of American and European art, including the Marsden Hartley Memorial Collection, featuring paintings, drawings, personal papers, and memorabilia. The Museum is also an important academic resource, supporting teaching and learning across the curriculum. It is also a leading arts and cultural center in the region. [From the Bates catalog.]
