The University of West Florida Pensacola Museum of Art augments the academic and community missions of the University and the UWF Historic Trust Museums by promoting an open and inclusive space of discovery and dialogue rooted in art, ideas and culture. We aim to facilitate the preservation, understanding, and engagement of visual culture for audiences in the Northwest Florida region and beyond through our permanent collection, interpretive programs, a vital and dynamic exhibition schedule, academic research and education.
The vision for the UWF Pensacola Museum of Art is to:
● Create an inclusive community space which increases the visibility of diverse artists and ideas and promotes educational and public programming which facilitates those ideas.
● Build a dialogue between artists, community members, students and the UWF community to share the transdisciplinary interactions of art, culture, the humanities, science and technology.
● Facilitate the creation of new and vital artwork and scholarship through museum-supported projects and increased accessibility to the museum’s permanent collection.
● Serve as a catalyst for cultural growth in Pensacola and as a bridge between UWF’s campus and the downtown historic district.
