University Museum

IUP University Museum

The University Museum brings the material history and arts of the region together in an environment that encourages exploration, dialogue, and enjoyment.

This mandate is based on the belief that art and history are unbounded and essential to our understanding of who we were, who we are, and who we want to be. The University Museum is dedicated to providing leadership in the development of quality collections, exhibitions, and educational and public programs that challenge how we see ourselves and the social and natural world in which we live.

In addition to regular exhibits throughout the year housed in its permanent exhibit space in the historic John Sutton Hall, the University Museum provides smaller exhibits throughout the campus and community with short- and long-term displays. There are currently pieces installed throughout the IUP Performing Arts Center, Cogswell Hall, Sprowls Hall, Sutton Hall, Clark Hall, and elsewhere.

The University Museum is also currently offering a book, Paintings of Indiana County, which includes the original paintings created by IUP alumnus Ron Donoughe in a work now on permanent exhibition in IUP’s Performing Arts Center balcony lobby. You may order your copy today. You can read more about Ron and his twin brother, Don, in a past IUP Magazine article.
