Mission Statement

The David Owsley Museum of Art cultivates lifelong learning and recreation in the visual arts through its collection of original works of art, engaging exhibitions, and educational programs for the university community and other diverse audiences.


Central to the David Owsley Museum of Art's mission is to provide educational programming that will further faculty, staff, student, and public use and understanding of the museum and its collection, of museums in general, and of the arts. To accomplish this goal, we offer tours, talks, materials for teachers, an education database, artist demonstrations, and written materials.

Our education philosophy centers on bringing together the needs of visitors and the resources of the museum (collection, exhibition, staff, volunteer, and financial), and balancing responsibility to the university (of which the museum is a department) with service to the community. In facilitating communication between the work of art and the viewer, we subscribe to a philosophy of learner-centered programming informed by a thorough knowledge of the collection and methods and strategies for effective teaching.
