Fred Jones Museum of Art at the University of Oklahoma

One of the top 5 university art museums in the country, this Oklahoma institution dates back to 1936. At the time, Oscar Jacobson was the director of the School of Art at OU. A fervid advocate of the arts, his passion spurred the creation of a museum. By 1971 the collection was impressive, and with a generous donation, the Fred Jones Museum of Art was built. Highlights of its permanent collection include work by Georgia O'Keefe, Edward Hooper, Monet, Renoir, and Van Gogh.
