About the Collection PDF Print

The Bucks County Intermediate Unit #22 Art Collection was the creation of Dr. Charles H. Boehm, a past superintendent of Bucks County Schools, and Walter Emerson Baum, a Bucks County artist.

Both gentlemen decided that the children of Bucks County needed to be aware of the local art history being created, and with this goal in mind, collected artwork from artists and created a traveling art gallery that was available to the schools.

In September 26, 1949 they donated a collection of 70 pieces of art to the Intermediate Unit with the mission to make these works of art available to the students of Bucks County. The collection has presently grown to over 350 pieces of artwork.

Included in the collection are world-renowned artists such as Walter Baum, Daniel Garber, Harry Leith-Ross, Sotter, and Redfield.
