Biggs Museum of American Art

Sewell C. Biggs was known by many titles: University of Delaware graduate, world traveler, and perhaps most importantly, art collector. In 1993, he founded the Biggs Museum of American Art. He filled its galleries with American art from the present all the way back to the 1700s, highlighting the evolution of American and especially Mid-Atlantic art. Sewell C. Biggs died in 2003, but he left behind an enduring legacy, one that continues to evolve as the museum brings in new, rotating exhibits.

  • Size: three gallery floors, more than 1,800 works, and more than 400 years of American art
  • Eye catchers: a collection of early American furniture, including a tall stained wood clock from the mid 18th century
