The Association of Academic Museums and Galleries believes that “great universities have great museums.” Colorado State University fits the bill for both.

With the newly renovated and named Gregory Allicar Museum of Art, the University and Fort Collins communities have a place to see and interact with a variety of collections of fine art.

From African art to Japanese prints, late Renaissance to modern and contemporary work, the Gregory Allicar Museum of Art offers anyone and everyone an opportunity to engage with other cultures, engage with a variety of media, and see special or traveling exhibits – all at no charge.

“Art is the visual language of the humanities, and gives people inroads into understanding other people’s cultures,” says Linny Frickman, museum director.
