About

The Gregory Allicar Museum of Art invites individuals to engage with art and each other to inspire fresh perspectives and wonder. Always free and open to all, the museum is a catalyst for visual literacy and critical thinking that instills a passion for learning.

With a growing and diverse collection of approximately 3,500 works of art and dynamic programing, the museum is a cornerstone of Colorado State University’s arts initiatives and a link to alumni, Fort Collins, and our region. The museum, is dedicated to educational vitality, embracing all audiences, and to honoring a diversity of art making across time periods, geographies, and cultures.

Located in the University Center for the Arts, the museum includes more than 10,000 square feet of galleries, augmented by teaching facilities and an additional 4,000 square feet of state-of-the-art collection storage facilities and exhibition preparation spaces. The Gregory Allicar Museum of Art is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums, one of fewer than 4% of museums in the nation with the distinction.

Gregory Allicar Museum of Art relies on the contributions of friends who help us fulfill our mission. Your financial support helps to fund our exhibitions, collection care and educational outreach programs.

Please note that Gregory Allicar Museum of Art does not review or accept any unsolicited exhibition proposals, nor are we able to provide information (attribution, authentication, appraisal, etc.) about privately held works of art not being offered as gifts to the museum. In addition to other ethical considerations, we are a small staff and doing so would adversely affect our ability to serve the University and our larger public. A list of area appraisers is available here.
