The main function of the art and architecture collection is to reveal human expression and the application of creative skill and imagination through the use of copper and its alloys.

 

Copper and its alloy, bronze, have been commonly used in art since the ancient Egyptians.  Copper has been used for molding work, bronze for statuary, and brass for casting.

 

Copper architecture is the practice of designing monuments and buildings that accommodate specific copper features to embellish structures creating a graceful appearance.

 

The Museum also features a Religious Art Room that displays how copper and its alloys have been used to feature religious art.  As the museum grows, different types of religions will be displayed.
