Statement of Purpose
The Daura Gallery exists to support the mission of University of Lynchburg by being a resource for teaching through the collection, care, interpretation, and exhibition of works of art, and to enrich the cultural life of the College and the community beyond.
The Daura Gallery is a teaching museum that enhances the University of Lynchburg’s academic mission, transforms learning through encounters with works of art, advances creative collaboration with all fields of study, and furthers the appreciation and enjoyment of the visual arts and cultural heritage for all University of Lynchburg constituencies.
Statement on Diversity & Inclusion
Academic museums and galleries across the U.S. are dedicated to teaching our many audiences about global heritage — past and present, individual and collective — not only to enhance educational and enrichment opportunities in the communities we serve, but also to foster mutual respect and understanding well beyond the borders of our localities. In furtherance of this commitment, we regularly welcome curators, faculty, students, and collectors from around the world who support our mission and share their creative practice and experiences with us.
