The Mills College Art Museum, housing the largest permanent collection of
any liberal arts college on the West Coast, is digitizing our collection
of works on paper, which includes notable examples of 19th and 20th
century photography, Japanese prints, Renaissance masters, and works by
early 20th century avant-garde artists.

Throughout the summer we are offering BEHIND THE SCENES tours of
collection highlights. Join us on the last Sunday of each month for guided
looks at selections from our unique holdings.
