Gallery closures due to Rodin reinstallation

Marking the centenary of Auguste Rodin’s death in 1917, the Cantor’s world-class collection of Rodin sculptures is currently being reinstalled. The Thomas K. Seligman Gallery and Africa Gallery will be closed May 29th to September 6; the Susan and John Diekman Rotunda, Eugènie B. Taylor Gallery, and Rodin Gallery will be closed June 5 to September 6; and the Rodin Sculpture Garden will close later in the summer, reopening at the end of September.

During this transition time, please enjoy our other 20 galleries, outdoor sculpture around the museum, and the neighboring Anderson Collection, one of the world's most outstanding assemblies of modern and contemporary American art.

Thank you for your patience!

Rodin! The Complete Stanford Collection

The Cantor Arts Center presents its entire Rodin collection, 200 works in all, for public viewing. The Cantor's collection of Rodin bronzes is among the largest in the world. The majority of the collection occupies three ground-floor galleries. Approximately 170 works by Rodin are on view inside the Cantor, mostly cast bronze, but also works in wax, plaster, and terra cotta.

Twenty bronzes, including The Gates of Hell on which Rodin worked for two decades, are outside in the Sculpture Garden. The Burghers of Calais are nearby on campus. The Rodin Sculpture Garden is open all hours, with lighting for nighttime viewing. Admission is free. Learn more
