Manetti Shrem Museum
Support the Manetti Shrem Museum this Give Day!

The Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Museum of Art at UC Davis is committed to making art accessible and open to all. Offering engaging experiences that reflect and serve the UC Davis community, the museum shares the university's core values of innovative research, interdisciplinary experimentation, and a dedication to educational programming while building on its legacy of exceptional teaching and artistic practice. 

Presenting free exhibitions and programs year-round, the Manetti Shrem Museum provides an unparalleled cultural resource for students, faculty, visitors and the extended community. Our dedicated supporters make all of this possible -- we are Free for All, thanks to you! 

Embracing its mission to cultivate transformational art experiences that inspire new thinking, the museum fosters visitor interactions with world-class art, artists and faculty.

At the Manetti Shrem Museum, we also celebrate the spirit of UC Davis. Education is literally out front in our award-winning building, where visitors commonly catch sight of students practicing, studying and learning. With a lecture hall that seats 125, a state-of-the-art Collections Classroom for seminar classes, direct access to the Fine Arts Collection, and a wet-materials studio for hands-on art making, the museum continues its dedication to the lively spirit of lifelong learning.
