Our University Museum of Contemporary Art and its permanent
collection play a vital role in educating our students. UMass (and Five College) students from
across various disciplines of study use the collection as a resource for building analytical skills in
their fields, a catalyst for conversation around current social issues, and building community.
As we celebrate the 60th anniversary of this vital visual arts resource, we ask that
you make a gift in support of the UMCA’s permanent collection.
With your investment, you help UMCA build and diversify its collection with more works by
artists of color and women artists; ensure UMCA continues as our teaching museum; and help it
become even more fully integrated into the fabric of our entire academic and local artistic
The UMCA thanks the UMassFive College Federal Credit Union for their ongoing support of our exhibitions.
