The MOA Print Study Room provides public access to works in the Museum’s permanent collection that are not currently on view in an effort to strengthen the museum’s bond to the University community and forge new relationships with scholars, educators, students, and artists who want to learn from or teach with objects in the Museum’s collection.
The Print Study Room is open to individuals and groups of up to 15 by advanced appointment unless open dates have been designated for specific prints.
