Mission Statement

Our mission is to advance knowledge and understanding of Australia’s Indigenous people and their art and culture worldwide. Working with living artists, international scholars and arts professionals, we provide a wide range of learning experiences to the University community and the public through exhibition, research and educational programs.

Description

The Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection of the University of Virginia is the only museum in the United States dedicated to the exhibition and study of Australian Aboriginal art, and the most significant collection outside Australia. The museum is free and open to the public.

We offer a comprehesive variety of programming, from lectures by visiting artists and scholars, film screenings, academic seminars, children's programs and other events. Our artist residency program, which brings Aboriginal artists from Australia to Charlottesville, enhances and enriches our local community with its exhibitions, gallery walk-and-talks, and engagement with social and human rights issues.
