In 1989 the Robert & Elaine Stein Galleries became a collecting institution and adopted a collecting policy focused on works of art created post-1967 and Western
in origin. This year was selected not only because Wright State University was founded in 1967, but it also marks a period of political and artistic turmoil, the aftermath of which caused significant changes in contemporary art.
With the help of an NEA Purchase Plan grant and local private donors, the Galleries have grown an impressive contemporary collection of over 450 pieces that include names such as Jim Dine, Robert Rauschenberg, Cindy Sherman, Jeff Koons, Chuck Close, and Lucien Freud.
