Our Mission Statement

The purpose of The Phillips Museum of Art is to foster an understanding and appreciation of the arts, which include contemporary, historical, and multicultural materials.  In its essence, the mission of The Phillips Museum is three-fold and encompasses the following:

  • Advancing the educational objectives of the college by presenting exhibitions and programs that support the curriculum, by acquisition of relevant objects and artworks, and by providing study and research opportunities for its faculty and students.
  • Contributing to the cultural life of the Lancaster community and the greater South Central Pennsylvania regions.
  • Functioning as the steward of Franklin & Marshall College's permanent collection, and overseeing its management.
