ARTS@St. Thomas

‌‌‌The University of St. Thomas art collections serve as teaching collections for our students and the public. For undergraduate and graduate students in art history, the collections provide an opportunity to view and handle the artwork, to learn proper curatorial and exhibition techniques, and to foster a better understanding of their cultural context. ‌

AMAA@St. Thomas

The American Museum of Asmat Art at the University of St. Thomas (AMAA@St. Thomas) has a deep and contextual collection of work by the Asmat people of Papua, Indonesia, in the western part of the island of New Guinea. The Diocese of Agats, the American Crosier Fathers and Brothers, and the original American Museum of Asmat Art donated the collection to the University in 2007. Rotating exhibits are on view in The Gallery on the second floor of the Anderson Student Center and storage facilities on campus.

St. Thomas Art Collection

The St. Thomas Art Collection consists of the public art on view throughout the St. Paul and Minneapolis campuses and represents many cultures from around the world, in particular African and regional art and media such as pottery and textiles. The St. Thomas Art Exhibition Program showcases rotating exhibits on view throughout the year in the Lobby Gallery of the O’Shaughnessy Educational Center.
