The Saint Louis University Museum of Art (SLUMA) originally was built in 1900 as the home of the St. Louis Club. Designated as a historic landmark, the structure is distinguished for its architectural character, features and rich detail. Temporary galleries host about six to eight exhibitions per year. The museum's permanent collection includes artists such as Chuck Close; Helen Frnakenthaler; Robert Motherwell; Jasper Johns; Kiki Smith; Richard Serra; Donald Sultan; Robert Rauschenberg; Andy Warhol; Roy Lichtenstein and Claes Oldenburg. The Collection of the Western Jesuit Missions showcases religious art and artifacts from the 13th to the 20th centuries. The John and Ann MacLennan Collection of Asian Decorative Art is one of the largest collections of its kind in the United States: netsuke figures carved from jade, amber and rosewood, beautiful household shrines of ivory, Japanese woodcuts and Chinese porcelain.
