Artist Statement/Bio
The University's mandate of pursuing cutting-edge research within the sciences and the humanities is reflected in the UMCA's exhibitions and programs. We approach the visual arts with the same quest for knowledge, discovery, and understanding that guides the scientist, engineer, or anthropologist. We see it as our mission to pursue the margins, explore unknown territory, rediscover the familiar, and take risks.

A unique advantage of a university affiliated public art museum is its ability to produce cross-disciplinary exhibitions that forge links among the various fields in the arts and humanities. This interdisciplinary focus reflects the UMCA's mission to explore and stretch the boundaries, focusing on new artistic developments and potentially leading to new scholarship. By serving as both a showcase and an active "laboratory" for the visual arts, our goal is to open up the field of discussion for our audiences. By bringing in guest curators to organize exhibitions, and writers and critics to contribute to our publications; by inviting visiting artists to meet with students and the general public; by scheduling special lectures and panels on timely subjects; by efforts to extend our program beyond the UMCA - through all these initiatives we seek to contribute a new element of inquiry to the visual arts and to increase people's involvement with art.
