Statement of Purpose:

The James A. Michener Art Museum is an independent, non-profit institution dedicated to preserving, interpreting and exhibiting the art and cultural heritage of the Bucks County, Pennsylvania region

Highlights & Collections:

In addition to hosting a changing schedule of exhibitions from around the country, the Museum is home to a world-class collection of Pennsylvania Impressionist paintings and also showcases important regional artists.


The Lenfest Exhibit of Pennsylvania Impressionism

The exhibition consists of world-class examples of works by the beloved painters whose names have become synonymous with Bucks County art. These paintings vigorously depict the grandeur and rustic beauty of the Bucks County landscape and are considered the finest collection of Pennsylvania Impressionist art in public or private hands. Drawn largely from the collection given by Marguerite and Gerry Lenfest, this permanent exhibition tells the story of the renowned Impressionist art colony centered in New Hope in the early 20th century.

Patricia D. Pfundt Sculpture Garden

This natural setting for sculpture pays homage to the Bucks County landscape that has inspired so many artists to live and work here. Distinct and contrasting elements of the garden echo the diverse geography of Bucks County: flowing water and boulder-strewn walkways suggest the native streams of the rocky, upper reaches; the main terrace represents the more populated, flat-lying coastal plain at the southern end of the county; tree-lined paths reminiscent of the agrarian landscape of central Bucks County link these contrasting areas together. Sculpture can be seen throughout the garden including an exhibit based on a cell from the old Bucks County Jail, the Museum's predecessor on the site.

Nakashima Reading Room

An installation of classic furniture from the studio of Bucks County's internationally known woodworker, George Nakashima (1905-1990). The traditional Japanese-style room was designed by his daughter, Mira Nakashima-Yarnall, and includes several important furniture pieces in the Nakashima tradition.
