New Additions to the NEHMA Collection showcases a select group of artworks the Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art has acquired for its collection in 2015 and 2016. Since the museum's founding in 1982, it has added between 50 and 250 artworks to its collection annually either through donation or purchase. Today, the collection includes more than 5,000 objects that illustrate the development of modern and contemporary art in the Western U.S. from 1920 through present day. New Additions is representative of this collecting philosophy and also illustrates the wide range of art media and materials in the museum's collection with examples of watercolor, ceramics, collage, assemblage, and paintings in oil and acrylic.
