La Salle University Art Museum

VISION

La Salle University Art Museum is a place of community engagement, educational inquiry, and interdisciplinary exploration - offering visitors of all ages and from all walks of life, opportunities to learn about original artworks, their historical contexts, and their continuing relevance.

MISSION

Did you know?

You can also make special arrangements to have artwork that is not on view shown to your students. Artwork on view in the galleries is just the tip of the iceberg for what we can offer to enhance student learning experiences. With the recent completion of a 2-year IMLS-funded grant project, the Art Museum’s permanent collection of over 5,000 objects is now available to search and explore online.
