History

The Bernard A. Zuckerman Museum of Art unites Kennesaw State University's permanent collection and the campus galleries program, which was founded in 1984 by Roberta Griffin, professor emerita. Bernard A. Zuckerman, an industry leader and supporter of the arts in Atlanta, began the initiative to build a stand-alone art museum at the University with a pledge of $2 million in 2010. The pledge was then matched with an additional $1 million from community donors and is supported by the KSU Foundation.

On March 1, 2014, the new building opened on the main campus of the University. As part of the greater KSU Arts District, the Zuckerman Museum of Art and its satellite spaces serve as a conduit between Kennesaw State and the greater community. The new building also provides a state-of -the-art home and research facility for the growing KSU permanent collection.
