New Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art WSU

Grand Opening Invitation!

Please join us for the Grand Opening Dedication Ceremony on Friday, April 6 (mom’s weekend) from noon to 1:00 p.m. 
President Kirk Schulz, architect Jim Olson, and patron Jordan Schnitzer will share their thoughts. Refreshments will be served in the Pavilion gallery and tours will be given every two hours beginning at 2:00 pm until closing. The new museum is located directly south of the CUB on Terrell Mall of the Pullman campus.

In the six new galleries of the Crimson Cube, we will be hosting fiber constructions from Marie Watt, an interactive sound sculpture by Trimpin, ceramics by Jeffry Mitchell, video from the True Collection, and portraiture from the collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and his Family Foundation. We will also feature works from the museum’s permanent collection titled Hearts: Selections from the Jim Dine Print Collection. We are delighted to host our featured artists’ works as our inaugural exhibitions and are confident that you will be inspired by both the art and the architecture you experience in the new space.

In our former location within the Fine Arts Center, now known as the Collections & Learning Gallery, we look forward to hosting the Masters of Fine Arts Thesis exhibition, opening April 3. The reception for the MFA show is April 6, at 6:00 p.m. Please check our calendar for opening event times and locations. It is going to be a busy weekend.

Thank you for making this happen! We are deeply grateful to our supporters for a new home for the arts, and are honored to realize the visionary dreams of those who founded our museum and its programs. It is with great pleasure that we move forward and begin to inspire a new generation of museum visitors.

With dedication to serving the arts and you, our valued constituency,
The staff of the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art WSU

Watch Our Progress!

Our new, live-feed web cameras, one on the top of Martin Stadium, pointing south and the other on Wilson-Short, pointing east, will give you a 5-minute refresh, 24/7 view of the building site!

As the new Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art/WSU is being built we want you to remember that while we’ve achieved our goal, our vision and our dream, you can still be a part of the new facility. Please give generously to our building campaign. With as little as $500 you can be “on the wall”.
