Krannert Art Museum (KAM) connects people and the arts at the University of Illinois. The second-largest general fine arts museum in the state, KAM has a rich collection of fine art from across the globe, from the fourth millennium BCE to the present day.
KAM presents special exhibitions that inspire teaching, research, and engagement with the community. The museum’s permanent galleries showcase strengths of the collection, from the ancient Andes and the ancient Mediterranean to European and American art, and the award-winning Encounters: The Arts of Africa. More than half of the museum’s 10,000 works of art are available to view online.
KAM provides a full calendar of events, including education programs, gallery talks, concerts, and family activities to more than 125,000 visitors each year. Admission is always free and group tours are available year-round.
Opening Night Receptions occur in late January and August. For the full calendar of events, please visit the museum website.
