Installation view of For Campus and Community: The Collection of the Grinnell College Museum of Art

Museum of Art

Powerful and thought-provoking art experiences that forge complex connections and inspire deeper understanding.

Presenting exhibitions of regional, national, and international art year-round, The Grinnell College Museum of Art is the nucleus of Grinnell’s Bucksbaum Center for the Arts.

Temporary Closure

The Grinnell College Museum of Art and the Bucksbaum Center for the Arts are closed to the public through May 15, 2020.

We appreciate your patience as we all work as a community to slow the spread of COVID19.

Temporary exhibitions and a permanent collection of more than 6,000 objects offer diverse classroom and research learning opportunities, and with a variety of creative outreach programs — including lectures, readings, concerts, performances, even yoga — the museum is a valuable link between the College, the community, and the wider region.
