Krannert Art Museum

Bio / Description: 

Krannert Art Museum and Kinkead Pavilion (http://kam.illnois.edu) promotes a vibrant exchange of ideas in the visual arts. Located at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, KAM is the second largest general fine arts museum in Illinois. Our art exhibitions and dynamic programs appeal to students, educators, families and the community.

Kam's rich permanent collection contains over 10,000 artworks dating from the fourth millennium BC to the present. The museum is nationally recognized for our extensive collections of ancient Andean, European and American art, including twentieth-century paintings, photographs, and works on paper. Our recently renovated gallery, Encounters: The Arts of Africa, celebrates the global reach and contemporary relevance of the arts of Africa and its diasporas. These holdings, combined with collections of Asian, ancient Mediterranean, and medieval art, make KAM one of Illinois' premier cultural destinations.
