Due to a construction delay, the opening of the museum will be held one week later than was originally planned. Krannert Art Museum will open new art exhibitions in its renovated main floor galleries on Thursday, November 17, 2016

We invite everyone to celebrate with us and get a first look at KAM's newly renovated main floor galleries.
