    Walking down the long hallway toward the American Gallery, you see Albert Bierstadt’s Looking Down Yosemite Valley, California. At just over five feet tall and eight feet wide, the grand dimensions of this beloved painting serve to convey the immense, wild beauty of the American West.

    How was this renowned painting acquired by the Birmingham Museum of Art and what does it take to present, preserve, and interpret this masterpiece?

    It is all part of the big picture. Every piece in our collection has a story and you are a part of the story, part of the big picture. We need your help to continue caring for and presenting the 27,212 works of art in our permanent collection, including the much-loved Bierstadt.
