Mission

DEDICATED TO ART

The Crocker’s mission is to promote an awareness of and enthusiasm for human experience through art.

We measure our success by our ability to enrich the intellectual and cultural life of the communities we serve. We strive to create and sustain a culture of learning in which works of art are perceived both as objects of visual delight and as symbols of human thought.

In short, the Crocker brings people together and connects them in unexpected ways with art, ideas, each other, and the world around them.
