The mission of the museum is to act as a voice for individuals whose perspectives are often omitted from the mainstream dialogue. We seek to showcase their artistic explorations of social injustices and to inspire action toward political and social change.
With the incessant exposure to violence (videos, photos, news stories) we are committed to pursuing more resources for arts programming and arts education in order to address the trauma that many in our city and country face. We are dedicated to the healing process that art inherently provides to support our community’s overall health and well-being.
We know that when students participate in the arts, they learn critical thinking, problem solving, and communication skills. When students have access to art education, they are engaging in meaningful examinations of artwork and methods of art making in order to participate in critical, meaningful, and joyful learning. They are able to tell their story through art and appreciate the stories of others, encouraging empathy, peace, love, compassion and unity. Our museum seeks to be a place to exhibit and celebrate this learning.
