American University Museum
Free and open to the public, the AU Museum hosts rotating exhibitions of contemporary art from around the globe and the Alper Initiative, a dedicated research and display space for the art history of Washington, DC.
While the museum's doors are closed, our team is busy working to bring you #ArtWhereYouAre. We are centralizing our digital content, including e-book catalogs, exhibition highlights, selections from our permanent collection, and more on our Museum@Home page. We look forward to connecting with you online!
