Carnegie Museum of Art enriches people’s lives through art. The museum is committed to global engagement and regional advancement. It champions creativity and its importance to society with experiences that welcome, inspire, challenge, and inform. The museum's core activities—collecting, conserving, presenting, and interpreting works of art—make those experiences possible. Carnegie Museum of Art is arguably the first museum of contemporary art in the United States, collecting the “Old Masters of tomorrow” since the inception of the Carnegie International in 1896. Today, the museum is one of the most dynamic major art institutions in America. It has a collection of more than 30,000 objects featuring a broad spectrum of visual arts. Through its programming, exhibitions, and publications, the museum frequently explores the role of art and artists in confronting key social issues of our time, combining and juxtaposing local and global perspectives. It strives to become a leader in defining the role of art museums for the 21st century.
