Located at the University of Wisconsin, the Chazen Museum of Art collects, preserves, interprets, and exhibits works of art and presents related educational programs in support of the teaching, research, and public service mission of the University of Wisconsin–Madison.
More than 20,000 works of art in the museum's collections represent the spectrum of art history across culture, period, media, and genre.
Every year, the Chazen organizes and presents between ten and twelve temporary exhibitions. These may be drawn from significant areas of the museum's own collection, designed to showcase the work of a notable living regional or national artist, or loans to the museum from institutions around the world.
