Permanent Collections

The permanent collection of the Vero Beach Museum of Art is central to the Museum’s mission and features art from the early twentieth century to the present in a broad range of media. The collection includes over 880 works of art and is currently concentrated primarily on American art; however, the Museum is also growing its international holdings in the area of contemporary art.
