The Art Museum of the University of Memphis (AMUM)
Since 1981, AMUM has been a haven for local and national contemporary art exhibits.
Called the University Gallery until 1994, it houses the Institute of Egyptian Art
and Archaeology's Permanent Collection, as well as its own collection of Works on
Paper. The museum also hosts the Department of Art's Graduate Thesis Exhibitions and
the Annual Juried Student Exhibition.
The Andy Warhol Foundation's Photographic Legacy Program selected AMUM as one of 183
college and university art museums to receive a collection of original Andy Warhol
photographs. Through a generous donation form Robert and Martha Fogelman, AMUM's permanent
collection also includes African art and artifacts.
Together with the Department of Anthropology, the College of Arts and Sciences and
the Department of Art, AMUM offers an Interdisciplinary Graduate Certificate Program in Museum Studies that prepares students who are enrolled in or graduated from a master or doctoral
degree program to enter the museum professions.
AMUM also offers a variety of educational programs for students of all ages in the
University and Memphis community, as well as the Mid-South. The Museum partners with
the University at large, the Institute of Egyptian Art and Archaeology, local schools and various organizations to present an array of enrichment programs.
Pla(i)n(e) Gallery is located in the Art & Communication Building level 1, room 100. Programming consists of three-week shows as well as artist talks
and other events.
