William and Uytendale Scott Memorial Study Collection of Works by Women Artists

Bryn Mawr College Art & Archaeology Collections

The William and Uytendale Scott Memorial Study Collection at Bryn Mawr College consists of works of art by modern and contemporary women artists, primarily from the Delaware Valley and the East coast. The Scott Memorial Collection began in 1991 when Bill Scott, a Philadelphia artist, writer and critic born in Haverford, PA and graduate of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, donated over sixty works to the College in memory of his parents William and Uytendale Scott. Since its inception, and through the subsequent generous contributions of Mr. Scott, women artists, their families and collectors, the Scott Memorial Study Collection has grown to over 320 works of art. These primarily include works on paper in a variety of media, such as prints, drawings and photographs, as well as a small group of paintings. Between 1993 and 1994, the College held three exhibitions of selected works from the Scott Memorial Study Collection. These exhibitions were co-curated by Mr. Scott and Carol Campbell, Curator of College's Collections.

Currently, works on paper by women artists may be considered as gifts for College's Collections if the art works support the mission of teaching and research. (See Collections Management Policy) Art works on paper will not exclusively be added to the Scott Collection unless relevant to the holdings of this collection and accepted by the Collection's Committee.

The goal of this website is to provide the public with an overview of this diverse collection. The following links provide access to lists of the artists represented in the Scott Memorial Study Collection. Other modern and contemporary women artists in the Bryn Mawr College Collections that are not part of the Scott Memorial Study Collection are also included in the link at the bottom of this page. This is not a comprehensive website of works by women artists at Bryn Mawr College. There are also women sculptors represented in College Collections and women artists represented in the holdings of the Bryn Mawr College Library.
