The Brigham Young University Museum of Art, located in Provo, Utah, is the university's primary art museum and is one of the best attended university-campus art museums in the United States.
After breaking ground two years prior, the museum opened in October 1993 as a location to house Brigham Young University's extensive collection of more than 17,000 pieces of art which, due to a lack of space, had never been able to be displayed permanently.
According to a 2004 survey, the museum ranked first in attendance among university campus art museums with 334,774 visitors. Among all art museums, the museum comes in 31st in attendance out of 157 member art museums from the United States, Canada and Mexico.
The museum displays paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures, installations, video, and photography. The permanent collection contains works of art from many renowned artists.
