Krannert Art Museum, University of Illinois

Krannert Art Museum (KAM) at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign is the second-largest general fine arts museum in the state of Illinois. 

KAM’s collection contains more than 11,000 works of art from around the globe, spanning six millenia, from 4,000 BCE to the present, and nine collection galleries, including our ongoing installation of modern and contemporary art. 

During the 2024 season, Krannert Art Museum is undergoing construction to enhance the accessibility and sustainability of our facilities. As a result, some galleries will be closed. All main floor collection galleries in the original building will be open. 

Our 2024 special exhibition opens February 1: Artist and educator Jen Everett remixes images of herself in conversation with materials she collects to talk about Black life, kinship, and collective gathering. Could you dim the lights? at Krannert Art Museum is her first solo museum presentation.

For more information and a full calendar of events, please visit the museum website. KAM is open five days per week, and admission is always free. Free group tours are available by request.
