Museum of Art

The Oklahoma State University Museum of Art is a teaching museum, passionately committed to providing opportunities for students to experience art through exhibitions and programs that enhance the academic mission of the university.


The OSU Museum of Art works closely with the Department of Art, Graphic Design, and Art History by supporting programming at the Gardiner Gallery on the OSU campus. In its galleries on campus and in the community, the OSU Museum of Art seeks to engage audiences with dynamic programs and access to a growing collection of original art that serves as a resource for the study of art and its history by the campus, community, and the people of Oklahoma.


Established in 2016, the OSU Museum of Art Advocates support the museum and its outreach to the community through their advocacy, volunteering, and/or financial contributions. The Art Advocates envision an expansion of the community and regional participation and support for the social, cultural and educational opportunities the museum offers.

Art enriches the lives of all it touches - become an Art Advocate to help spread art throughout the community with educational programming which brings the museum to life for so many. Art Advocates support the museum with annual financial contributions of $100 or more. 

Your annual gift of $100 or more provides you access to:

  • Invitation-only curator tours
  • VIP Art Advocates events featuring artists and programs
  • Special educational and travel opportunities
  • 10% discount at the Museum kiosk in The University Store at the Student Union on OSU campus
