About ASU Art Museum
About the museum
With a social justice and equity lens and the experimental, scholarly nature of the university art museum, ASU will have a meteoric impact on museums in the future. The museum harnesses the university’s breadth and depth of expertise to pioneer new models for arts learning, engagement and innovation that integrates relevancy, trust and resilient communities with museum institutions.
Two locations give ASU Art Museum a broad reach in terms of programs and audiences:
- Designed by Antoine Predock and opened in 1989, the Nelson Fine Arts Center facility is located on ASU’s Tempe campus with three floors of year-round exhibitions that rotate seasonally and the award-winning museum store.
- The Brickyard located in downtown Tempe on Mill Avenue houses the Ceramics Research Center, a national and international destination for the study and appreciation of ceramics, and the Brickyard Gallery.
