Abbeville County Library-Poliakoff Collection

Abbeville County Library-Poliakoff Collection

The Native American and Western art collection of Dr. Samuel R. Poliakoff was assembled in the 1980s during his extensive travel throughout the American Southwest. It is now displayed in the Abbeville County Library. Dr. Poliakoff desired his significant collection of Southwestern American belong to the city and county of his birth, bequeathing his collection to the Abbeville County Library along with a financial bequest. Authentic and built with an extensive knowledge of the Southwest peoples, each piece in the collection serves as window into Native American art, increases our knowledge and inspires other artists.  One of the best collections of contemporary Native American ceramics, bronzes, weavings and paintings outside the southwestern United States.
