About

Mission 

what we do

The Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art furthers the teaching, research, and service missions of Kansas State University by collecting, studying, caring for, and presenting the visual art of Kansas and the region. The Museum’s exhibitions and programs expand its collecting focus by connecting regional art, culture, and interests with the larger world.

Vision

what is meaningful about our work

The regional art in our collections — as well as art generally — provides a rich terrain for discussion across disciplines. We present encounters with art as opportunities for exploring human experience.

Impact

result of our work on audiences served

Individuals think anew about personal experiences, sense of place, and the world of knowledge.
