Oglethorpe University Museum of Art (OUMA) seeks to contribute to the university’s presence and recognition in the community by featuring high quality exhibitions that are international, representational or spiritual in nature.  It serves students, faculty and staff of the university as well as the Atlanta community by bringing awareness to diverse cultural backgrounds. OUMA aims to complement the city’s cultural offerings with its unique offerings. In addition, OUMA’s exhibitions are complemented by educational programming that uses art to enrich traditional classroom learning and the liberal arts curriculum.
