About

West Collection artworks are on long-term loan to SEI, the financial services firm founded 50 years ago by Al West.  Al and his daughter Paige have spent the last 23 years collecting 3,500 compelling contemporary works by over 800 international artists. The goal of the West Collection is to share challenging and inventive work of emerging artists with SEI employees and their clients, as well as the public.  At any given time 1,000 works from the West Collection are installed at the SEI Corporate Campus in Oaks, PA and SEI satellite offices. Artworks are also loaned to various international and local museums and universities for exhibition. In recent years loans have been made to the Guggenheim Bilbao, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, and the Tate Modern, to name a few. Recent projects include an exhibition series at the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia and an educational initiative in a public school.  Tours are by appointment only.
