The Baum Gallery of Fine Art is an educational art museum serving as a learning lab for the students, faculty and staff at the University of Central Arkansas and as a cultural resource for the entire Arkansas community. The Director and the Faculty Exhibitions Committee select national and international touring exhibitions, sponsor juried student shows and cooperate across disciplines to curate original exhibits distinctly suited to an academic environment. The gallery hosts exhibitions and events that invite interaction and encourage dialogue about visual art: the creators, studio processes, history, criticism, curation and cultural contexts.
