Our Museum is a bridge. Our Museum is a catalyst. Our Museum is for everyone. We connect art and education, our university and our community, generations and cultures.
The Paul and Lulu Hilliard University Art Museum is not just a place to look at art. It’s a place where visitors are encouraged to truly see art.
It is place of learning, where students sketch in the galleries and artists talk about their work. It’s a destination for families, where kids express their own creativity through hands-on activities. And it’s a resource for academic research and observation.
Why do we maintain an art museum?
We believe that art is a catalyst for social change. Museum experiences build skills that extend into every aspect of life. Viewing art promotes dialogue and understanding between individuals, among families, and throughout our community.
Art makes life richer. And better. For everyone.
