Mission

In keeping with the University’s mission of teaching, research, and service, the Bernard A. Zuckerman Museum of Art (ZMA) seeks to exhibit, collect, preserve, and interpret significant works of art. Through dynamic programming, we encourage the exchange of ideas that inspire, educate, and foster an appreciation of the visual arts in our community and the region.

 

The ZMA Art Collection, under the care of the Museum, is a repository for original works of art held in the public trust and serves as a valuable resource for research and education.

 

Audience

Our exhibitions and related programs are developed in deliberate support of the Visual Arts departmentís mission to prepare students to enter professional careers as studio artists, graphic designers and art educators with an awareness of global aesthetics and historical/cultural contexts. Through internships, exhibition opportunities, seminars, visiting artists, and guest lectures, our students experience traditional, ethnic, international and contemporary works of art in our galleries. Every exhibition relates in some way to specific course content and curricular objectives. Please click here for a map of the Arts District
