Location: Arizona State University, Tempe, Ariz.

The ASU Art Museum was founded in 1950 with a gift of American and Mexican artworks, demonstrating an early commitment to the study and preservation of art across cultural and geographic borders. Through their new "Global Arizona" initiative, the museum has formed partnerships in Cuba, Brazil, and Argentina, tackling societal issues through exhibitions and public programs. A self-described "laboratory," the ASU Art Museum can yield unexpected results.
