As of February 27, 2017, the museum is permanently closed to the public. The university is digitizing the museum’s holdings for research and can be viewed on our Collections page.
Each year the museum mounts several temporary exhibitions, which generally are on view for a period of six to eighteen months. For some, smaller traveling versions have been sent to the Charlotte and Miami campuses of Johnson & Wales. These shows are built around our own collections or are collaborations with outside artists and scholars.
