|Educational and Community Outreach||The ASU Art Museum's approach to education is not to explain the work, but offer a bridge that connects the viewer to the work of art.
Community outreach, a natural function of the overall museum orientation, is pursued in partnership with other cultural institutions and engages the public. It reaches new audiences through non-traditional methods, and often through activities in local schools and neighborhoods.
