Statement of Purpose:

The mission of the ASU Art Museum is to serve a diverse community of artists and audiences through innovative programming that is both interdisciplinary and educational. Exhibitions, education programs and publications are designed to engage viewers with art that is relevant to their lives. New technologies in the content of art and in the approaches to reaching new audiences are eagerly and openly adopted.

The Museum serves students and scholars within and beyond the University and as a cultural resource for the Phoenix metropolitan area. Additionally, the Museum serves a public beyond this immediate area through traveling exhibitions, publications and a website that not only document the exhibitions but also offer critical insight into the Museum's areas of concentration.
