In 1998 Juniata College accepted the gift of the Worth B. Stottlemyer Collection and renovated its existing exhibition galleries in Carnegie Hall to formally establish the JCMA. The Stottlemyer collection of over 500 works, which comprises the core of the JCMA permanent collection, includes 18th and 19th century American and European paintings, prints and drawings; 19th century Japanese color woodblock prints; and 18th – 20th century portrait miniatures.
The Stottlemyer Collection was given by Quayton Stottlemyer, Juniata class of 1951, in honor of his father, who amassed the works between 1927 and his death in 1951. For a complete history of this significant acquisition, consult The Stottlemyer Collection: A Journey (Mathur, Amy and Rosell, Karen, ed. Juniata College Museum of Art, 2014).
