The new HOTA Gallery is home to the more than 4,500 artworks held in the City Collection, with only a selection currently displayed as part of our permanent (yet rotating) exhibition, HOTA Collects.

Explore over 200 pieces currently available online and make your list of must-see works for when you can visit us in person. The number of pieces available online will continue to grow! So there will be more to explore, discover, and appreciate as we bring the mammoth collection to the digital world.
