Rotating selections of Miotte’s work are shown at the museum on a regular basis, as are selections from the museum permanent collection, which contains 500 works, including paintings, etchings, sculpture, ceramics, tapestries, and works on paper, primarily focusing on L'Art Informel and Abstract Expressionist artists from Europe and the United States, including Pol Bury, Mimmo Rotella, and Jean-Paul Riopelle.The museum focused on 20th and 21st Century including artists who have been exposed more in their home countries than the United States. It was committed to an exploration of "art within a context," offering a program of exhibitions inspired by current social, political, and cultural events. "Insight" was a series of small exhibitions and creative projects showcasing new talent by providing a forum for emerging artists. "The Project Room for New Media" was an incubator of new ideas, showcasing groundbreaking concepts in all art mediums and emphasizing the intersection of the arts through technology.
