Vision Statement:

To love and celebrate the arts and cultures of Asia

Mission Statement:

The Crow Museum of Asian Art inspires and promotes learning and dialogue about the arts and cultures of Asia through our exhibitions, the research and preservation of our collections, artistic and educational programming, and visitor experience and engagement. We accomplish this in accordance with the highest professional standards, through collaboration with our diverse public and partners in our communities, nationally, and internationally. We define Asia as endlessly diverse, and not of one place, time, or idea. By cultivating compassion and inclusivity through our work, we build greater awareness and a shared sense of what it means to be human.

Institutional Goal:

To put compassion into action
