The Frances M. Maguire Art Museum
Coming SPRING 2023

 

The Frances M. Maguire Art Museum at Saint Joseph’s University will serve as an art education hub for the University and its surrounding community. 

The educational partnership between the Barnes Foundation and Saint Joseph’s University expands opportunities for students and the community to engage in horticulture education and fine arts programming. In keeping with the educational missions of both institutions and the gallery’s original use, the Frances M. Maguire Art Museum will present exhibitions and educational programming including art classes, lectures and performances. The museum will contribute to the University’s robust art programming, welcoming community members, school groups and the wider public to experience its offerings. 

The vision for the Frances M. Maguire Art Museum is a dynamic, modern gallery set within the Barnes Arboretum at Saint Joseph’s University, a historic 12-acres that is home to more than 2,500 varieties of rare plants and breathtaking blooms. Fully integrated with the University’s campus, the museum features refreshed and modernized interiors and enhanced accessibility. 

Please stay tuned for updates and details on our progress in the coming months.
