Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art WSU

Our Story

The new Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art WSU is more than a place to view and experience art. The design, by Jim Olson of Olson Kundig, and prominent campus location increase access to the arts for the entire Inland Northwest region. It is designed as a beacon for the arts, inviting visitors to experience the vitality of art at WSU. In both location and design, the building brings art to the forefront of university life.

Olson’s design concept of a mirrored crimson cube rewards viewers with an ever-changing landscape with which to view themselves and the world around them. Life mirrors art, and in this case the building itself is a mirror for the campus as well as a hint of the treasures inside.

The Museum is located in the Crimson Cube (on Wilson Road across from Martin Stadium and the CUB) on the WSU Pullman campus. The hours of our six galleries are Tuesday – Saturday, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., closed Sunday and Monday. For more information please contact the museum at 509-335-1910. The Collections and Learning Gallery of the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art WSU is located on Wilson Road across from Martin Stadium in the Fine Arts Center on the WSU Pullman campus. The Collections and Learning Gallery hours are Tuesday – Saturday, noon – 4 p.m., closed Sunday and Monday.
