About the University of Alabama Jones Collection of Art:
In 2008, Paul R. Jones donated a portion of his collection of African American art to the University of Alabama. With over 1,700 pieces, the Paul R. Jones Collection of American Art at The University of Alabama is one of the largest collections of African American art in the world. Jones was known as a passionate collector who sought to collect from both well-known and lesser-known artists, a quality which makes his collection distinct.
The University Art Gallery is located on the second floor of the Visual Arts Building and is open Monday through Friday 8:30 am—4:30 pm, Saturday 10 am–3 pm.
