Mission Statement

The Snite Museum of Art provides opportunities to enjoy, respond to, learn from, and be inspired by original works of art. As a department of the University of Notre Dame, the Museum supports teaching and research, creates and shares knowledge, celebrates diversity through the visual arts, serves the local community, and explores spiritual dimensions of art.

Description

The permanent collection features over 27,000 artworks and continues to grow through endowment income, gifts of art, and gifts of funds to purchase artworks. Major collection strengths include Mesoamerican art, old master paintings and drawings, nineteenth-century French art, nineteenth-century photography, and the art of Ivan Mestrovic. While our old master collections feature numerous subjects relating to Christianity and Catholicism, our holdings also include Native American, Latino, African, African-American, and contemporary art-as represented within the collection section of this website.

The Museum presents ten to twelve special exhibitions each year, many of which are augmented by scholarly publications. Current exhibitions are described in that section of this website.

One curator of education designs programs for the academic community and a second is responsible for outreach to the local community, primarily to school children.
