DeVos Art Museum

The DeVos Art Museum consists of two galleries: one for rotating exhibits including national, community and student works; and the other for the university’s permanent collection, which ranges from Inuit and Japanese collections to a large native American collection to 20th-century illustration. The museum was made possible with support from the Dan and Pamella DeVos Foundation and the Richard and Helen DeVos Foundations.

The DeVos Art Museum opened in February of 2005 after the completion of the new museum building, designed by HGA Architects. The museum is part of the School of Art and Design at Northern Michigan University (NMU) and was endowed by a gift from the DeVos Foundation of Grand Rapids.
