Mission & Vision

Mission

The mission of the museum is to foster the study and appreciation of art, history, and culture, both within the university and throughout the global community, through its affiliation with The Textile Museum and through its university collections, including the Albert H. Small Washingtoniana Collection.

The Textile Museum expands public knowledge and appreciation—locally, nationally, and internationally—of the artistic merits and cultural importance of the world's textiles.

Vision

The museum's vision is to inspire and engage communities by celebrating the creative achievements of local and global cultures across time.
