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.
