About the Spencer Museum of Art

Located on the Lawrence campus of KU the Spencer Museum of Art offers a diverse collection of more than 40,000 art objects and works of cultural significance. Objects from 6 continents span the history of art from ancient to contemporary. Areas of special strength include Native American art; photography; European and American painting, sculpture, and prints; Japanese Edo-period painting and prints; and modern and contemporary African sculpture, painting, and decorative arts. The Spencer Museum’s vision is to present its collection as a living archive that motivates object-centered research and teaching, creative work, and transformative public dialogue. The Museum facilitates arts engagement and research through exhibitions, artist commissions and residencies, conferences, film screenings, musical and dramatic performances, artist- and scholar-led lectures, children’s art activities, and community arts and culture festivals. The Spencer Museum of Art is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums and participates in the Association of Art Museum Directors.
