Krannert Art Museum

The Krannert Art Museum is an art museum located at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in Champaign, Illinois, United States. It has of space devoted to all periods of art, dating from ancient Egypt to contemporary photography. The museum's collection of more than 10,000 objects includes specializations in 20th-century art, Asian art, and pre-Columbian art, particularly works from the Andes. In 2012, the Krannert Art Museum opened a newly redesigned gallery of African art entitled Encounters: The Arts of Africa. In addition to permanent exhibitions, the museum often features 12 to 15 exhibitions each year from traveling national and international museum collections as well as exhibitions of professional artists, faculty and student work.

The museum was designed by architect Ambrose Richardson in a style reminiscent of the late work of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. An addition to the museum was completed in 1988. This addition, the Kinkead Pavilion, was the creation of Larry Booth and Associates. The building incorporates contemporary Egyptian art decorative elements in an overall post-modernist design. The museum has over 132,000 visitors annually and supports scholarship through the Fred and Donna Giertz Education Center.

Major collections of the museum include the Trees Collection of European and American Painting, Moore Collection of European and American Decorative Arts, the Olsen Collection of pre-Columbian Art, and examples of 20th-century art.

The museum is a unit within the University of Illinois College of Fine and Applied Arts.

The museum is named for benefactors Herman C. Krannert and his wife Ellnora Krannert in recognition of Ellnora's interest in the arts. Provided by Wikipedia
