|JOHN YOUNG MUSEUM OF ART
The late artist John Young envisioned a museum on the campus of the University of Hawai'i at Mānoa (UHM) that would further art education and benefit the students and the community. Toward the fulfillment of a museum, his bequest to the university included a collection of artworks from Asia, Southeast Asia, the Pacific Islands, Africa, and Mesoamerica. Many of those works were presented at The John Young Museum of Art when it opened to the public in Krauss Hall in 1999.
Following recent renovations, The John Young Museum of Art is now a 2,000+ square foot complex that includes galleries, workshops, a small research library, an office, and an outdoor courtyard. The museum focuses on interdisciplinary student-centered programming of its exhibitions, collections care, and events that promote, support, and sustain museum education initiatives for UHM and the local community.
