The Rose Art Museum is New Englandâ€™s museum of modern and contemporary art. Founded in 1961, The Rose is an educational and cultural component of Brandeis University that seeks to engage its communities in experiencing the significant art, artists, and ideas of our time. Throughout the year, The Rose organizes a series of temporary exhibitions and collection displays that present a range of modern art, emerging artists, and displays of the Brandeis University art collections.
In the field of contemporary art, The Rose Art Museumâ€™s exhibitions, collections and publications rank it among the most distinguished college and university museums in the country. The addition of the Lois Foster Wing in 2001 has enabled The Rose to exhibit bolder, more demanding shows. In line with the progressive tradition of the museum, The Rose is working with the renowned architects Shigeru Ban and Dean Maltz on the phase two expansion of the museum. Scheduled to be completed by the beginning of 2008, the new building will launch a new era of The Rose Art Museum by offering more opportunities for rigorous acquisitioning, comprehenive educational programming, and improved staff support.
