ASU Museum announces the establishment of an endowment for the care, management, and conservation of its collections. A generous donor who requested to remain anonymous is making a $25,000 gift commitment to a special endowment in support of the collections held by Arkansas State University Museum.
The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) has awarded Arkansas State University Museum $51,921 through its NEH CARES: Cultural Organizations program. The purpose of this emergency relief program is to assist institutions and organizations working in the humanities that have been affected by the coronavirus. With this funding, the Museum will augment its staff through December 2020, prepare pandemic-appropriate programs, and devise strategies to safely deliver programs.
The Museum serves the academic mission of the University as a teaching museum and provides quality programming that broadens the perceptions of people in Northeast Arkansas and the Mississippi River Delta region, connects people with their history, promotes tolerance, engages minds in progressive thinking, and enhances the sense of community among all audiences.
Quality exhibits that broaden perceptions
ASU Museum offers exhibits connected to State-mandated curriculum, hands-on gallery activities that bolster STEM-learning, tours, and suitcase exhibits that can be checked out—all for free! The Museum’s Tinkering Studio (Saturday10:00–5:00 and Tuesday 3:30–6:30) inspires creativity and inventiveness. Our Birthday Parties are matchless and competitively priced. From learning amazing things about historic Northeast Arkansas to shopping for unique items in the Gift Shop, there is something for everyone at ASU Museum.
ASU Museum is proud to be an accredited member of the American Alliance of Museums, an organization that supports all museums through developing standards, resources, career development opportunities.
