Juniata College Museum of Art

Juniata College Museum of Art Small art museum in a lovely 1907 former Carnegie Library, with changing exhibitions year round.

The Juniata College Museum of Art is located in Carnegie Hall, a Beaux-Arts structure built in 1907 as the college library through funds provided by Andrew Carnegie and the citizens of Huntingdon. Designed by New York architect Edward Tilton, Carnegie Hall reflects turn-of-the-century library design. It includes a grand entrance stairway, a domed rotunda, and three separate wings that originally functioned as reading rooms and open stacks. The entire structure retains its original grandeur and elegance. In particular, the rotunda, dome, and tiffany-styled stained glass oculus create an impressive central space. Carnegie Hall served as the college library until 1963, when its holdings were transferred to the newly constructed L.A. Beeghly Library. Funds provided by Mabelle Shoemaker, wife of local historian and folklorist Col. Henry Shoemaker, helped to convert Carnegie Hall into a fine arts studio and exhibition center. In 1998, the acquisition of the Worth B. Stottlemyer Collection led to the formation of the Juniata College Museum of Art. Through funds provided by Edwin A. and Susan Rabinowitz Malloy, Carnegie Hall was fully renovated as the Juniata College Museum of Art.

Mission: The Juniata College Museum of Art (JCMA) contributes to the social and intellectual well-being of its campus and local communities by providing access to works of distinctive aesthetic quality in ways that inspire, provoke creative and critical thought, and refresh the spirit.

The JCMA is OPEN for Art Walk (or drive - it's chilly out there!). As of tomorrow, however, we'll be CLOSED for winter break until Tuesday, January 21.

We'll see you in the new year, with inspiring and thought-provoking new exhibitions! Join us for Art Walk on January 16, 5-8pm for a sneak peak of our newest show: American Dream: Photographs by Zora Murff.

With the sounds of wolves and owls resonating in the museum, we say farewell today to In the Fabric of the Woodland, our artist-in-residence project with Lauren Strohacker. We are so grateful for the art work that sparked so many community responses in clay, fiber, paper, text, and drawing.

The JCMA wants to thank our community participants who hosted message boards: Raystown Field Station, Shaver's Creek Environmental Center, Borough of Huntingdon (for our Portstown Park installation), Heart of Mount Union (for our First Friday installation), Rick O'Banion, Lincoln Caverns, Jim and Jennifer Troha, and of course, Juniata College campus (thanks, Facilities staff!).

We value and appreciate the faculty who created projects and visits to support student learning in the arts and environmental science.

JCMA Museum Studies students continuously updated the exhibition - a unique requirement of this innovative project. Great work!

Thank you for sharing many personal experiences that conveyed wonder, respect, thankfulness, fascination, concern, and joy. Let the exhibition continue to inspire awareness of and reflection on our relationships with wildlife.

The museum provides space for all kinds of collaborative projects. Today, we host "woman, wmn, wymyn, womxn, wxmxn: a salon". This project is a collaboration between PAX-O and a Communication Department course called Women, Work, and Identity. We will be displaying the final projects produced by the class, including art installations, video productions, presentations, and podcasts- the projects deal with the main themes of gender, individuality, and culture.

The event is TODAY (Thursday, Dec. 12) from 3:00pm-4:30pm on the lower level of the museum. Join us for refreshments and conversation; we'd really love to see you there!

This empty studio will come alive with possibility as her work In the Fabric of the Woodland comes to fruition!

Professors Streb and Gould have been busy at the end of the semester with last minute preparations for their study abroad trip to Prague. While in the Czech Republic each of the students on the trip will write at least one blog post. They’ll be posting about their work with the folks at The Lobkowicz Collections and about their cultural experiences. We hope that you’ll “follow” the blog so you can see the updates. https://czechcastlecollections.wordpress.com/
