Yager Museum of Art & Culture


The Yager Museum of Art & Culture presents groundbreaking exhibits throughout the academic year, and is open to the public.

What’s more, the Museum functions as a hands-on learning environment for Hartwick students minoring in museum studies, one of the few opportunities of its kind for undergraduates.

Our Mission:
The Yager Museum of Art & Culture, a center for exploration of our artistic, archaeological, ethnographical, historical materials and culture heritage, serves as an experiential learning lab that engages students in the museum’s efforts in collecting, preserving, researching and interpreting collections according to the highest standards of professional practice.

Our Vision:
Through engaging exhibitions and programs that capture the imagination of students and the public, the Museum facilitates contemplation and discussion of objects and ideas from the past to spark creativity, insight, and inspiration about diverse cultures, including realities from the past and prospects for the future.
