MISSION STATEMENT

"Bring the arts to the people."

The mission of the Tarble Arts Center is to engender appreciation for and involvement in the arts, especially the visual arts, as a major arts resource for the people of east-central Illinois and Eastern Illinois University through the presentation of temporary exhibitions and community-based educational and outreach activities. As a division of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS), the Tarble Arts Center has a mandate to collect, preserve, exhibit, and interpret the university’s permanent collection of art, and to support the educational mission of the university.

 

OUR COMMITMENT TO YOU

The Tarble has been accredited by the American Alliance of Museums (AAM) since 2001. Accreditation involves a rigorous process that examines all aspects of a museum’s operations. AAM accreditation demonstrates the Tarble’s commitment to excellence, accountability, high professional standards, and continued institutional improvement. Of the nation’s nearly 17,500 museums, only just over 1,000 are currently accredited. The Tarble Arts Center is 1 of only 32 museums accredited in Illinois, and 1 of 7 accredited university museums in the state.
