The Triton Museum of Art's Permanent Collection
The Triton Museum of Art collects and exhibits contemporary and historical works with an emphasis on artists of the Greater Bay Area. The permanent collection includes 19th and 20th century American art of the Pacific Rim, Europe and beyond. The Triton Museum is home to acclaimed permanent collections including the Austen D. Warburton collection of American Indian art and artifacts and the largest public holdings of paintings by Theodore Wores.
The Triton Museum of Art has an opportunity to build its Permanent Collection in a most significant and impactful manner. The Museum was fortunate to acquire two of his paintings for its collection, but here is the exciting part: we have the opportunity of acquiring four more major works by Ferlinghetti, which would make us the largest museum holder of Ferlinghetti’s works. In addition to becoming stewards of this important body of work, the Triton will also become a major lending institution of his paintings, ensuring that his artistic contributions continue to be recognized and shared. It is an awesome responsibility and honor… for which we need your help. The Triton Museum of Art is asking for your help. Our goal is to raise $40,000 to help us acquire this important collection of Lawrence Ferlinghetti paintings. Your gift of art will give many returns and help support the Triton Museum for years to come.
