Mission Statement

The mission of the Museum of Art and Archaeology at the University of Missouri-Columbia is to provide access to original works of art and artifacts through the development of the permanent collection and to preserve and maintain all objects in its care. The Museum uses its resources to make its collection physically available to its constituents through public display or by special arrangement. The Museum also uses its resources to make its collection intellectually accessible by studying and researching its holdings and making the results available to its audiences. The art and artifacts the Museum collects and displays must be historically and culturally significant and relevant to the audiences it serves. A "relevant" object is understood to be one that enhances teaching, is suitable and of sufficient interest for research by faculty, students, and other scholars, and is of cultural significance to the broader community.
