Mission

The Wignall Museum of Contemporary Art is a teaching museum and interdisciplinary art space that fosters direct engagement with works of art through exhibitions, education and community programming.

Vision

The Wignall museum introduces Chaffey College students, faculty, staff and community members to innovative contemporary art objects and ideas. By fostering critical thinking, visual literacy, discourse, and empathy, the museum seeks to enhance the intellectual and cultural life of our community.

Values

The Wignall museum believes in the power of art to generate new ideas, and that art fuels creativity and critical thinking, essential for collaboration and innovation. We acknowledge our responsibility to present works of art and programming that challenge our perceptions about the world, and to engage in work that supports and values cultural equity and inclusion, accessibility, and fair distribution of resources.

Teaching Philosophy

The Wignall museum is a non-collecting institution that features temporary exhibitions of contemporary art and other dynamic programming and public engagements throughout the academic year. The museum inspires hope and success in our students by fostering critical thinking in a space that encourages investigation and innovation. Our exhibitions and programming are developed with our students in mind in order to enhance their academic experience by complementing the college’s curricula and broadening their understanding of contemporary art and the ideas they explore. The Museum advances the mission of Chaffey College by contributing to the intellectual and cultural life of the college and providing a dynamic, supportive and engaging environment where our diverse student populations learn and benefit.
