Haugar’s art collection is owned by Foundation Haugar Art Museum. The collection is predominantly acquired thorough endowments by the Norwegien Art Council, gifts from Friends of Haugar, local artists and collectors, in addition to own acquisitions.

In 2011 Haugar embarked on an extensive collaboration with The DNB Savings Bank Foundation. The foundation is committed to projects in art and culture, and has offered Haugar Art Museum long term deposits of important works of art by both international and Norwegian artists.
