Each year the American Art Awards board selects the 25 Best Galleries And Museums In America.

HighlightHollywood.com reported in 2016: “The impressive AAA board chooses only one museum or gallery per state per year. Their selections are based on years established, industry reputation, online buzz, location, size, socially relevant exhibits, motivational and educational programs, represented artists as well as artist, client and visitor references.”

American Art Awards: “We consider thousands of the most established art venues from Alaska to Florida. This year we chose several museums and art centers with historical significance of 100+ years, some with over 100,000 annual visitors, some specializing in global acquisitions, some American treasures, others objects preserving their state’s legacy, and some celebrating one specific artist’s life work. We’ve also selected some of the most reputable art galleries; some which offer every style of international art, others exhibiting works from one region or one genre. A Native-American facility is included in our Top 25, as well as a longstanding women’s design institution, a popular Boston sculptor’s co-op, and a Hollywood Warhol hot spot.”

University of Missouri Museum of Art and Archaeology won the distinction of Best Gallery Or Museum In Missouri, 2018, and one of American Art Awards 25 Best American Galleries / Museums, 2018.

American Art Awards: “The Museums’s coveted and rare antiquities collections and European and American art collections from the fifteenth century to the present are a phenomenal influence and aid to students and visitors. We are also impressed with the museum’s achievements in trailblazing research and education and credit their proficient staff who expertly balance commitments to exhibition and interpretation, education, collections growth, community engagement, scholarship and service. Important collections across a wide range of cultures — Greek, Roman, Near Eastern art works, ancient Egypt, Byzantium, Asian, African, Ancient Americas, and Oceanic — make this particular museum one of the nation’s great treasures.”

MUSEUM MISSION:

To advance understanding of our artistic and cultural heritage through research, collection and interpretation. We help students, scholars and the broader community to experience authentic and significant art and artifacts firsthand and to place them in meaningful contexts. We further this mission by preserving, enhancing and providing access to the collections for the benefit of present and future generations.

The Museum was selected by the Capitoline Museum in Rome as partner in a joint project to document previously unstudied antiquities from Ancient Rome. Currently the Museum is in the midst of a federally-funded digitization project, making the collections accessible to anyone, anywhere, and also contributes to a range of other international research and cataloguing projects, including the Gothic Ivories Project, the Cuneiform Digital Library Initiative, the Corpus Vasorum Antiquorum and ASMOSIA, the Association for the Study of Marble and Other Stones in Antiquity.

The Museum publishes a peer-reviewed journal, MUSE, which includes scholarly contributions relating to the Museum’s collections, field projects and disciplinary foci, and Museum, a popular member magazine.

The Museum’s 30+ year Missouri Folk Arts Program (MFAP) ignites cross-cultural understanding by documenting, sustaining and presenting Missouri’s living folk arts and folklife in collaboration with everyday citizens.
