Zuckerman Museum of Art, United States

Housed within the Department of Museums, Archives and Rare Books at Kennesaw State University, the Bernard A. Zuckerman Museum of Art encourages the exchange of ideas and artful thinking to inspire visitors and engage them with the vibrant arts community of our region.

The Zuckerman Museum of Art presents significant works from Kennesaw State University's permanent collection while regularly exhibiting contemporary works of various media by local and nationally-recognized artists. The ZMA serves as a center for the enrichment of the arts, arts education and professional development. Through the creation of uniquely curated exhibitions, community outreach, workshops and programming the museum acts as a bridge between the campus and the community while also providing dedicated exhibitions for the KSU students and faculty in the ZMA's satellite gallery.

The Bernard A. Zuckerman Museum of Art unites Kennesaw State University's permanent collection and the campus galleries program, which was founded in 1984 by Roberta Griffin, professor emerita. Bernard A. Zuckerman, an industry leader and supporter of the arts in Atlanta, began the initiative to build a stand-alone art museum at the University with a pledge of $2 million in 2010. The pledge was then matched with an additional $1 million from community donors and is supported by the KSU Foundation.

On March 1, 2014, the new building opened on the main campus of the University. As part of the greater KSU Arts District, the Zuckerman Museum of Art and its satellite spaces serve as a conduit between Kennesaw State and the greater community. The new building also provides a state-of -the-art home and research facility for the growing KSU permanent collection.

Cultura e conhecimento são ingredientes essenciais para a sociedade.

A cultura é o único antídoto que existe contra a ausência de amor.
