The Muscarelle Museum of Art is a university museum affiliated with the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia. While the Museum only dates to 1983, the university art collection has been in existence since its first gift – a portrait of the physicist Robert Boyle – in 1732. Most early gifts to William & Mary relate to its history or the history of the Commonwealth of Virginia. Gifts of portraiture were the foundation of the early collection and include many First Families of Virginia (FFV) including sitters from the Page, Bolling and Randolph families.

  • We came to see the Degas exhibit and it was really wonderful. We checked out the Baskin exhibit, as well, and it was fascinating. A great juxtaposition between the two exhibits. They compliment each other in a fun way.
  • Impressive museum on the campus of William & Mary. I was thoroughly fascinated by The Human Frame: Prints by Leonard Baskin, a student-curated exhibit which runs through September 25. Baskin's background in sculping is evident in his prints, which are bold and visceral, with elements of the human form taking precedence over the whole. The students did a wonderful job of providing context and background so the works of an artist with whom I was unfamiliar could be appreciated. Well worth your time to visit this cultural gem in Williamsburg.
