Renovation: Director's Message

September 2018 marked forty-three years for the Brunnier Art Museum. For many of you, you've been by our side for most of those years. You watched the Henry J. Brunnier Galleries turn into our beloved Brunnier Art Museum. The Farm House Museum completing its transformation from college farm to Dean's home to campus museum. The inception of the Christian Petersen Art Museum and the surrounding Elizabeth and Byron Anderson Sculpture Garden. The proliferation of both the Art on Campus Collection and the University Museums permanent collection. And the newest addition, the ReACT Exhibition Series, presented in the Reiman Gallery of the Christian Petersen Art Museum at Morrill Hall.

We're eager to present you with what comes next. With all of this incredible growth taking place during the best and worst of financial times for the University Museums, it's time to take the next necessary steps at the Brunnier Art Museum. The safety and security of our collections, along with our accreditation, is dependent on an evolved on-site storage facility. And the opportunity has come to ensure our visitors, the students, faculty, staff and community from around the world, experiences a place where the permanent collection can be showcased.

We welcome you to join us on this journey. And ask that you consider the role you can play to greater support the arts at University Museums.

- Lynette Pohlman, Director and Chief Curator, University Museums
