MUSEUM DESIGN
The Museum of Art was designed by Los Angeles architect James Langenheim. Former
directors of lighting and design at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, LeMar Terry and Stuart
Silver, assisted in determining the sophisticated lighting requirements and the best functional
use of space.
Prominent personnel from such associations as the Smithsonian Institution,
the Getty Museum, and the National Gallery of Art also contributed to the design and
planning of the building. The objective of these designers was to construct an art museum
that not only exhibited art but was itself a work of art. The building's articulated triangular
shape provides a constant change in size, direction, form and light.

Museum Philosophy
The Museum of Art is a place where
the heart and mind are brought
together to seek knowledge and
values, self affirmation and spiritual
understanding.
We hope your experience in the
Museum will nurture a more
reflective mind, a capacity for
deeper inquiry, a stronger
commitment to excellence and
integrity, and heightened
appreciation for others and
their ideas.
