Named after celebrated collector Jonathan "Jack" Westervelt Warner, the Westervelt-Warner Museum of American Art lines its storied interior with hundreds of paintings, sculptures, artifacts, and antiques from the artistic annals of American history. From its woody nest overlooking Lake Tuscaloosa, the museum commemorates significant events and figures in America's history, from posed portraits of George Washington and Thomas Jefferson to Paul Revere-made silver and furniture designed by revolutionary wood-sculpting beavers. Explore the creative flourishings of world-renowned artists in Westervelt-Warner's various galleries, from Edward Hopper's portrayal of soldiers in Dawn Before Gettysburg, situated in the Mid 19th Century Civil War collection, to the impressionist gallery's Children Playing at the Beach, depicting four young girls frolicking in the summer surf while calculating the market value of their split-level sandcastles. Other galleries include works from the Hudson River School, Native American & Western art, 20th Century oils, and Still Life easel musings.
