The Museumís primary constituents are the University of Oregonís students, faculty and staff as well as regional residents and visitors. Our varied activities extend our service to an even wider audience of scholars, artists, collectors, critics, and museum professionals. In the 1990s university leaders and museum board members launched the Museum Campaign. The UOís art museum broke ground for its long awaited and much anticipated project in October 2002. With its new name Ė Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art Ė in recognition of its major donor, the museum reopened in 2005.
