To heighten the visibility of Fisk University's art collection for the study and enjoyment
of everyone through high quality programs and exhibitions, and to enrich the public's awareness
and appreciation of art through the acquisition, preservation, research and interpretation of works of art.
Fisk University Galleries provide a welcoming environment and foster an appreciation and understanding of art through exhibitions, educational programs and research. The galleries maintain a permanent collection with over 4,000 objects that span three centuries of art history. Paul Cezanne, Pablo Picasso, Alexander Calder, Henry O. Tanner, Elizabeth Catlett, Diego Rivera, Aaron Douglas, Winold Reiss, Georgia O'Keeffe and Alfred Stieglitz are just a few of the acclaimed artists represented in the collection, along with significant examples of African, Oceanic, and Asian art. Works from the collection are exhibited regularly in permanent and temporary installations at the university's Carl Van Vechten Gallery
and Aaron Douglas Gallery
