MISSION STATEMENT


The Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art seeks to advance
and support the broad educational mission of the
University of Florida through the museum's unique
functions of collecting, preserving, presenting and
interpreting original and exemplary works of visual art.
Through its exhibitions and educational programs, the
museum strives to enhance the teaching and research
activities of the university, and to serve the academic
community and a culturally diverse regional, national
and international audience.































PERMANENT COLLECTION

The Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art is charged with the
responsibility of consolidating and caring for the
diverse collections of art assembled at the University of
Florida over the past several decades and is committed
not only to the expansion of these collections, but to the
development of strong holdings in other areas as well.

The collection currently consists of more than 6,000
works of art in various media, including ceramics,
painting, sculpture, prints and photography. The works
represented are from the Americas, Asia, Africa and
Europe. Our exhibition areas devoted to the permanent
collection frequently change as existing holdings are
expanded and new holdings are developed. Traveling
exhibitions drawn from our permanent collection are
also organized in an effort to reach the widest possible
audience.
