Patrons will learn not only about the exhibited art but come to an understanding of art itself. The exhibitions will not only help them appreciate art but will show the importance of art in their lives. For example, problem solving is a major part of making art and lessons learned about this can be applied to all areas of life.

We will provide our visitors with facilitated learning and opportunities for implementing positive change in their own lives and the community. We will use partners that are involved in and across their communities, and we encourage our visitors to share with us their own thoughts on achieving this kind of change. 

SWRMA, like all good museums, has a mission to preserve its collections and to exhibit them in an educational and aesthetic manner.
