Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University
Although best-known for its sculpture garden and collection of works by Rodin, the Cantor Arts Center offers a variety of galleries and exhibitions from ancient cultures to the works of 20th century masters. Collection highlights include 2500 works from African artists dating back to ancient Egypt and the sub-Saharan cultures of the 19th and 20th century, two galleries of European and American paintings and sculpture from the 16th to 19th centuries, and nearly four thousand works by ancient and modern Chinese and Japanese artists. There is also a dedicated gallery for works by Native artists of North and South America, including pieces that represent the Anasazi and Hopewell cultures of the American Southwest.
