Mission

Oglethorpe University Museum of Art (OUMA) serves the university and greater Atlanta community by presenting exhibitions that reflect the interdisciplinary strength of a liberal arts education and the cultural diversity of our community. OUMA engages students by providing a creative stage for the development of museum professionals and engages the public with exhibitions and programming founded on the principles of excellence and social service.

Vision

OUMA is a crucial tool for University enrichment and scholarship and, as Brookhaven’s only museum of art, is uniquely positioned to fulfill the University’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion through expansion of collections, education, and community engagement.

ATTENTION: The Oglethorpe University Museum of Art is currently closed for winter break. The museum will reopen on Friday, Feb. 15.
