The official Tumblr of the Arizona State University Art Museum


Named "the single most impressive venue for contemporary art in Arizona" by Art in America magazine, the ASU Art Museum is an integral part of the ASU Herberger Institute of Design and the Arts at Arizona State University. The inventive ASU Art Museum serves a diverse community of artists and audiences through innovative programming that is interdisciplinary, educational and relevant to life today.

In honor of #MuseumCats Day, we found some fine felines featured in artworks currently on display. Meow!
