About Oklahoma State University & the OSU Museum of Art
OSU is a modern land-grant system of interdisciplinary programs that prepares students for success. Through leadership and service, OSU is preparing students for a bright future and building a brighter world for all. As Oklahoma's only university with a statewide presence, OSU improves the lives of people in Oklahoma, the nation, and the world through integrated, high-quality teaching, research, and outreach. OSU has more than 35,000 students across its five-campus system and more than 24,000 on its combined Stillwater and Tulsa campuses, with students from all 50 states and around 120 nations. Established in 1890, OSU has graduated more than 240,000 students to serve the state of Oklahoma, the nation, and the world.
Oklahoma State University Museum of Art’s mission is to advance creativity, lifelong learning, and cultural and civic engagement through exhibitions and programs. The Museum contributes to the academic research and teaching of Oklahoma State University and is committed to serving learners from communities across Oklahoma and beyond. Housed in a repurposed 1933 post office located off campus, the Oklahoma State University Museum of Art opened its doors in this location in January 2014. With primary holdings in modern and contemporary American art, the Museum's inherited collections have grown from 3,000 to 5,000 objects. We are the only art museum within the 135 mile stretch between Tulsa and Oklahoma City. Our annual attendance ranges between 6,000 and 7,600 visitors and admission is free.
