The Miller ICA supports Carnegie Mellon University's mission of "creating and disseminating knowledge and art" by fostering experimentation that expands the notions of art and culture and by providing a forum for engaged conversations about creativity and innovation. The museum produces internationally touring exhibitions, projects, events and publications with a focus on social issues.
The Miller ICA frequently collaborates on public programming with local and national organizations as well as schools, departments and groups across Carnegie Mellon. The museum’s international, interdisciplinary exhibitions and publications have included work by university faculty, staff and alumni. The museum also hosts the annual Carnegie Mellon MFA and Senior Art (BFA and BXA) exhibitions, co-organized with the School of Art, which provide graduating students with valuable experience participating in a professional gallery exhibition, while giving the community an opportunity to see work by some of the most exciting and promising new artists emerging from CMU.
