The mission of the Museum is twofold: to enrich the university and the community by exhibiting works of art which expand the understanding of art today and of the past and to serve as a teaching instrument for art instruction, particularly by holding exhibitions of informational value to students and the general public and by providing student artists with an arena to exhibit their work.
MoFA has a history of exciting exhibitions—from lush painting to dynamic sculpture, from challenging installations to provocative photography. Every season begins with an international competitive exhibition that embraces all media and every semester closes with the youth and exuberance of the graduating-artist exhibitions. In past years we have shown an honor roll of contemporary artists—James Rosenquist, Duane Hanson, James Turrell, Judy Chicago to name a few—and thematic exhibitions have looked at topics from gun imagery in our society to the powerful expressions of Latina and Black women artists. We have examined the contact zone of Anglo and Native American cultures, the mystical side of Haitian folk painting, and the unsophisticated but intense works of outsider artists. The future promises exhibitions of equal caliber and interest.
