FROM THE DIRECTOR

Virginia Anne Sharber
Here at the Hunter Museum of American Art, we are firm believers that art and creativity are forces for personal growth and positive community change, and we are honored to serve as a cultural resource for our community. As we strive to better engage our diverse audiences in active dialogues about the importance, meaning, and relevance of American art, the Hunter continues to re-imagine and re-interpret American art through compelling programs for every age and through diverse and interactive exhibitions. These programs and exhibitions are shaped by our commitment to representing a variety of experiences, cultures, and perspectives in hopes that visitors see art with new eyes as way to better understand the many facets of American history and to learn more about what makes us Americans today. As stewards of the museum, we are constantly working towards its improvement, and we are grateful for your support, your ideas and your suggestions as we strive to ensure that your experience is exciting and thought-provoking. I invite you to come and explore all the museum has to offer, and I look forward to seeing you at your Hunter!
