The ASU Art Museum recognizes the special responsibility and public trust associated with the receiving, maintenance and sharing of objects of cultural and historical significance. Periodic, thoughtful reevaluations are necessary for the growth and proper care of the collection and the objects here no longer fit the museum’s mission, specialized collecting areas or are redundant. To better serve the cultural and educational needs of our audiences, we are deaccessioning these works following the highest standards of professional ethics as guided by the American Alliance of Museums and the Association of Art Museum Directors. All proceeds are restricted in use to acquiring new art objects or for the direct care of the ASU Art Museum’s collection.
