Art Museum Faculty Resource Guide: Home

This is a faculty resource guide composed of faculty testimonials, online resources, and ideas for integrating the La Salle University Art Museum into classroom instruction.

La Salle University Art Museum



The mission of the La Salle University Art Museum is to further the University’s Lasallian educational objectives by helping students, other members of the University community and the general public to experience significant, original works of art in an intimate setting and to place them in meaningful contexts. In addition to acquiring, preserving and exhibiting its collections, the Museum offers viewers an opportunity to sharpen their aesthetic perception and to investigate the interrelationships which emerge between art and other disciplines.

Did you know?

You can also make special arrangements to have artwork that is not on view shown to your students. Artwork on view in the galleries is just the tip of the iceberg for what we can offer to enhance student learning experiences. With the recent completion of a 2-year IMLS-funded grant project, the Art Museum’s permanent collection of over 5,000 objects is now available to search and explore online.
