Through its collection of sacred art, the Bob Jones University Museum & Gallery exists to promote the appreciation, understanding, and preservation of quality fine art that reflects universal and scriptural truths based on God’s Word and works. The Bob Jones University Museum & Gallery extends its collection into communities at home and abroad through its educational and cultural outreaches that enrich the whole man—mind, heart, and soul.

Educational Mission :
Through tours, events, and publications, the Bob Jones University Museum & Gallery seeks to partner with educators in fulfilling all of the National Visual Arts Content Standards. By integrating art into the core curriculum, M&G’s goals are to teach children to value the arts, to communicate through the arts, to become creative problem solvers through the inclusion of STEM-related concepts and fully-developed STEM units, to understand history and culture in light of the arts, to improve literary interest and understanding through visual story telling, to critique the arts, and to develop an aesthetic awareness in the arts. Through fulfilling the mission, M&G is able to help develop citizens who have the ability to think, feel, and understand the world in which they live.
