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, collections, 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.

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. Since 2022, the museum has been overseeing the care and management of the Chaffey College Art Collection.

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.
