Part of the Oregon Center for the Arts at Southern Oregon University, the Schneider Museum of Art serves both an academic and a community audience, striving to engage the museum-goer through its exhibitions and programs in order to support interdisciplinary study, research, and discourse. It is open to both students and the public year-round, and features a rotating slate of exhibitions focused on historical and contemporary perspectives of art and progressive work by nationally and internationally-recognized artists. There is no entrance fee.
The museum’s permanent collection is primarily focused on works on paper from the twentieth century and beyond, and includes artists Mark Tobey, David Siqueiros, Jack McLarty, George Inness, and Alexander Calder. Other works in the collection: lithographs by William Hogarth, Pre-Columbian ceramics from Costa Rica, Native American baskets, and woven artifacts from New Guinea.
Hours are Monday through Saturday 10am-4pm; the museum is closed on Sundays. There is a free tour of the museum every Tuesday at 12:30pm.
