The McMullen Museum of Art at Boston College organizes and presents innovative, multidisciplinary exhibitions that receive national and international recognition, attracting audiences from the Boston area and beyond.
The McMullen is in the vanguard of museums creating exhibitions that extend past traditional art historical presentations, providing political, historical, and cultural context for works on view. It plays a major role in the cultural and intellectual life of Boston College, as well as the international community of scholars and art enthusiasts.
In keeping with the University’s central teaching mission, the Museum’s exhibitions are accompanied by scholarly catalogues and related public programs. The McMullen Museum of Art was named in 1996 by the late BC benefactor, trustee and art collector John J. McMullen and his wife Jacqueline McMullen.
