The Permanent Collection of the Art Museum of South Texas contains more than 1,500 works of art in the
media of painting, sculpture, prints, drawings, collages, mixed media, ceramics, and textiles. The focus of
the Permanent Collection is on fine art and craft of the Americas with particular interest in Texas and
surrounding states, including those in Mexico.
In 2001, AMST became the recipient of a major portion of the paintings, library, and personal documents
of Dorothy Hood, a Texas-born modernist who died in 2000. To learn more about this incredible artist, click here.
