Study for the human body

The Miami University Art Museum (MUAM) celebrates this PRIDE month by sharing with you a few works which are by LGBTQIA+ artists in the museum’s permanent collection. Celebrating Artistic Diversity is at the very core of our mission and we strive to be inclusive and welcoming to all through our exhibitions, programs and also our collections. MUAM wishes to create a space of acceptance that makes members of the LGBTQIA+ community welcome to our spaces, events, and programs. Please see here for more information about LGBTQIA+ initiatives and support at Miami University.
