Mission Statement

The Crocker Art Museum is dedicated to promoting an awareness of and enthusiasm for human experience through art. To fulfill its mission, the Crocker Art Museum collects, preserves, exhibits, and interprets outstanding works of art that are the product of human ingenuity and creativity. We measure our success by our ability to enrich the intellectual and cultural life of the communities we serve.

Description

The first public art museum founded in the Western United States, the Crocker Art Museum was established in 1885 and is now one of the leading art museums in California. The Crocker serves as the primary regional resource for the study and appreciation of fine art. The Museum offers a diverse spectrum of special exhibitions, events, and programs to augment its collections of Californian, European, Asian, African and Oceanic artworks, and international ceramics.

The Crocker Art Museum is the only museum in the Sacramento region accredited by the American Association of Museums, a recognition given to less than 800 of the nation's 17,500 museums. AAM accreditation certifies that a museum operates according to standards set forth by the museum profession, manages its collections responsibly and provides quality service to the public.
