Where are we going today?

Located on the historic Francis Quadrangle on the University of Missouri campus, the Museum of Art and Archaeology is the only AAM-accredited art museum in mid-Missouri. Its galleries include archaeological materials and ancient art from Egypt, Mesopotamia, Palestine, Anatolia, Greece and Rome (including the mummy shroud of Taathyr, the daughter of Thatres); a separate gallery showcases artifacts from the Byzantine and medieval periods. The European and American Gallery includes major artworks including portions of a Samuel H. Kress Study Collection in Renaissance and Baroque Art, as well as works by renowned 19th century American artists. Other galleries include modern and contemporary works by artists including Pablo Picasso, N.C. Wyeth, Dale Chihuly, Thomas Hart Benton and Charles Demuth. Don't miss the marvelous sclpture, Maudelle, by mid-20th century African American artist Beulah Ecton Woodard. South Asian art, with a strength in medieval Indian sculpture, is presented in the Carlebach gallery, with smaller exhibits of African and Oceanic art. Three additional galleries host traveling or temporary exhibitions.
