Loyola University Museum of Art

LUMA Collection

In recognition of the Museum’s broad mission to explore and promote understanding of the enduring spiritual questions of all faiths and cultures as expressed through art, a new collection—the LUMA Collection—has been established. Gifts of 308 Vinča, Thessalonian, and Kiliya-type Neolithic idols, ranging in date from 6500 to 3500 BCE, and contemporary photographs, prints, and textiles demark the Collection’s parameters. The majority of its pieces reflect the Museum’s temporary exhibition history.
