On Nov. 3, the University of Arizona announced a historic capital campaign, FUEL WONDER, the largest campaign in university history. Building a new University of Arizona Museum of Art is one of the campaign’s Presidential Priorities.
Through the transformative experience of first-hand encounters with original works of art, university art museums are places of discovery, wonder, and enjoyment. University art museums catalyze new research, foster interdisciplinary experimentation, and provide innovative opportunities for teaching and learning across all disciplines.
University art museums are ‘anchors’ in their communities. They offer formal and informal learning opportunities for all, create a sense of belonging and civic engagement, and contribute to economic growth and social wellbeing
Our goal is simple yet powerful
A new, state-of-the-art museum to serve as a vibrant hub for teaching and learning, research and innovation, and community engagement in and through the visual arts.
- Case for Support | Great Universities Have Great Art Museums
- Support a New UAMA | Fuel Wonder capital campaign
For over four decades, UAMA has been accredited by the American Alliance of Museum (AAM), the highest national recognition afforded the nation’s museums. Less than four percent of all museums in the United States are accredited, an accomplishment of the highest quality educational programming, exhibitions, and collections.
The new UAMA, to be located nearby on Speedway Boulevard, will include classrooms and flexible spaces for public programming and events, transforming the nature and scope of educational and community engagement opportunities within the museum and creating a vital creative hub for campus.
