Krannert Art Museum presents an array of ambitious exhibitions and programs in our galleries and classroom studio spaces.
The museum presents 10–12 high-quality exhibitions and more than 150 educational programs and special events to approximately 120,000 visitors each year. Our innovative programming and vital artistic collaborations regularly engage diverse audiences and build public engagement, resulting in a web of interaction among artists, curators, students, and visitors in the museum space.
