The “American History Abridged” provides highlighted objects and images from United States history, while the other collections feature specialized objects based on specific historical periods.

Some collections also contain contemporary works of art from artists like Kara Walker or Glenn Ligon that incorporate historical themes, subjects, and methodology in their work.
