The permanent collection spans the history of art; highlights include 17th-century Dutch and Flemish paintings, late 19th- and early 20th-century European art, and modern and contemporary American art. The main building was designed in 1917 by Zanesville native Cass Gilbert, and a 1977 addition was designed by Venturi, Scott Brown & Associates. Several temporary exhibitions are presented each year. The museum oversees tours of the Usonian-style Weltzheimer/Johnson House, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright 1947-48; it is several blocks from campus.
