Boasting a collection of over 25,000 objects and nine annual special exhibitions, it’s no wonder that UVM’s Fleming Museum was voted the best art gallery in Burlington.
The Fleming was first opened in 1931, and since then has been an integral part of the UVM cultural community.
A wide variety of art and artifacts, dating back to the beginning of human history, are on display in their permanent exhibits.
Highlights include work from American artist Winslow Homer, Northern Renaissance artist Albrecht Durer and even a preserved mummy from Ancient Egypt.
The Fleming is currently hosting four temporary exhibitions: “Oceanic Art and the Performance of Life,” “Contemporary Voices from Vermont,” “High Trash,” and the recently installed “Andy Warhol’s Athletes.”
“Andy Warhol’s Athletes” features 10 portraits of athletes by famous pop-artist Andy Warhol. The series includes athletes such as O.J. Simpson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Pel?.
Admission to the The Fleming Museum is $3 for students, $5 for adults and $10 for families. Visit www.uvm.edu/~fleming for more information.
