The Kruizenga Art Museum aims to educate, engage and inspire the students, faculty, staff and alumni of Hope College — as well as the broader communities of Holland and West Michigan.

The new Kruizenga Art Museum (KAM), opened and dedicated in September 2015, provides exhibition space for the college’s extensive permanent collection and visiting exhibitions. It provides additional support for curation of the collections, as well as space and resources to view and study works from around the world, spanning centuries.

The museum was developed with an emphasis on engaging faculty and students from many academic disciplines in the study and interpretation of art. Its vision is to be an educational resource — not only for the college, but for all of West Michigan.
