The Art Museum at Arizona State University offers a wealth of information to art enthusiasts about contemporary and southwestern inspired art and artistic innovations.
With an intention to educate and inspire, the ASU Art Museum has recently spearheaded four new program initiatives: Global Arizona, Social Studies, InterLab, and Moving Targets. These new programs will build upon the Museum’s history of exploring the role of new media in the arts and the ways in which these advancements enhance the relationship between art and life.
There are currently six exhibitions on view at the Museum, please see the list for more information on each.
There are many ways to support the ASU Art Museum. Please visit their website to become a member, train to be a docent, volunteer at special events, or work in the Museum Store.
