The Madison Art Collection is an administrative unit of James Madison University and acquires art and cultural works in fulfillment of the university’s mission, specifically to foster an informed appreciation of the rich diversity of the human experience.  It preserves and exhibits those works to the public, serving as both steward and interpreter of cultural common wealth.

Located in the lower level of the Festival Conference and Student Center in room 1108, the James and Gladys Kemp Lisanby Museum presents dynamic, high-quality exhibitions featuring works of art from the Madison Art Collection. Serving both the university population as well as that of the surrounding community, the Lisanby is dedicated to celebrating diversity, scholarship, and the pursuit of knowledge.
