Smart Museum Of Art Free Admission Thursday

Free Admission Thursday from 10am to 4:30pm at Smart Museum of Art - see INFO below. From the beginning, the Smart was guided by an educational mission focused on teaching and research, and by a commitment to making the arts accessible to the University community and wider public through our collection and special exhibitions. In the past decades, the Smarts broad-based collection has expanded significantly, both through major gifts and through the initiation of an active acquisitions program. Likewise, the scope of the Smarts mission has grown substantially. Initially run from within the art history department, the Smart gained administrative autonomy in 1983 and adopted a new focus on public outreach, first within the campus community and then throughout the city. In the 1990s, the Museum began a seminal phase of programmatic expansion, launching educational programs for local public schools as well as programs that support collaboration with faculty and the integration of the Smarts exhibitions and collection into the University curriculum. Around the same time, our name was formally changed from the Smart Gallery to the David and Alfred Smart Museum of Art to better reflect our activities. More Info below.
