Since opening in 1983, Dickinson's collection has grown to over 6,000 works with considerable holdings in works-on-paper. Highlights of its ever-growing collection include prints by a number of major Modernist artists, 19th century American and European prints, European and Asian decorative arts, African ethnographic material, bronze statues, and antique coins and artifacts. The gallery's two exhibition spaces feature changing exhibits throughout the year that range from across the globe in almost every medium imaginable. The entrance level gallery houses selections from the museum's permanent collection while the lower-level gallery features temporary exhibits often on loan from other museums.
The Trout Gallery actively participates in numerous local community events and also hosts special events throughout the year for students and the public, including opening receptions, tours, and a variety of children's programming in the Mumper-Stuart Education Center located in the lower level. Admission to the Trout Gallery is free and all events are free unless otherwise noted. View upcoming exhibits and programming at www.troutgallery.org.
