Community home page
The McDonough Museum of Art is Youngstown State University's Center for Contemporary Ideas, Art, Education, and Community. It opened in 1991 after a generous gift from a local physician and avid art collector, Dr. John J. McDonough. The Museum features changing exhibits, performances, and lectures by regional, national, and international artists. It also functions as a public outreach center for the College of Creative Arts and Communication and the Department of Art in particular.
The key objectives of the museum are to:
- act as a partner in all aspects of programming
- to serve as a unique center for public engagement
- to articulate the public value of aesthetic experiences
- and to function as a catalyst for new knowledge and substantially affect the way the arts contribute to education and public life.
