The Haggerty Museum of Art’s institutional genetic code is formed by a collection of over 6,000 works of art created from the Renaissance period to the present. Marquette University began to acquire works of art shortly after it was founded in 1881. These early collecting efforts laid the foundation for what would become, over a century later, the collection of the Haggerty Museum of Art. This exhibition presents a selection of the Haggerty’s most celebrated works of art.

“Artists Reaching Classrooms [ARC] not only provides students with a window into the mind of a professional artist, but it invites them to participate, to think, to react, and to create. They begin to understand what it means to take their place as stewards and shapers of culture.”—Mary Weimer Green, Hughes STEM High School art teacher.
Available on the Taft Museum of Art Facebook page, the exhibition features nearly 90 works and includes mediums like painting, photography, digital design, video and ceramics.
