ABOUT Mission & Vision

The mission of the Walters Art Museum is to bring art and people together for enjoyment, discovery, and learning.

We create a place where people of every background can be touched by art. We engage and strengthen our community by collecting, preserving, and interpreting art.

In November 2015, the Walters Board of Trustees approved a Strategic Plan for the museum. Since then, it has been the guiding force for initiatives and programs. It outlines a shared vision of the Walters as a transformative force in the community and in the museum field. We invite you to read more about this vision for the Walters in our Strategic Plan.
