Allentown Art Museum
The Allentown Art Museum was founded in 1934 by the teacher, painter, and critic Walter Emerson Baum (1886-1956) as a meeting place and exhibition space for area artists. The Museum moved to its current location so it could accept a generous gift of 53 Renaissance and Baroque paintings and sculptures from businessman and philanthropist Samuel H. Kress in 1960-1961. The Museum expanded in 1975 when a room designed by Frank Lloyd Wright came into the collection. Over the years the Museum’s collection continued to grow, notably with a large and important donation of textiles and gifts of works on paper. Today the Museum’s collection of more than 17,000 works of art offers the opportunity to experience nearly 2,000 years of cultural heritage.
