Located on the campus of Southern Methodist University, the Meadows Museum's largest collections focus on the Spanish "Golden Age." From the 1550s to nearly the beginning of the 18th century, Spain experienced a flowering of the arts. The Meadows collection contains masterworks by Velázquez, Murillo, Ribera, and many others working during this time. The Meadows Museum is also responsible for the Southern Methodist University Art Collection. The collection began in 1920 and originally consisted primarily of Texas Regionalist art, including important artists such as Jerry Bywaters. The collection now contains a wide array of artwork donated by alumni and friends of SMU. Guided tours are available.
