Katherine E. Nash Gallery Mission
The Katherine E. Nash Gallery is a research laboratory for the practice and interpretation of the visual arts. We believe the visual arts have the capacity to interpret, critique and expand on all of human experience. Our engagement with the visual arts helps us to discover who we are and understand our relationships to each other and society. The Katherine E. Nash Gallery will be a center of discourse on the practice of visual art and its relationship to culture and community -- a place where we examine our assumptions about the past and suggest possibilities for the future. The Nash Gallery will play an indispensible role in the educational development of students, faculty, staff and the community. http://nash.umn.edu/
Department of Art Mission
The Department of Art provides an introduction to the practice of art for all students as well as immersive training for emerging artists. We promote creative expression and conceptual development through a broad range of art disciplines and practices. Initial experiences emphasizing traditional methods are supplemented at intermediate and advanced levels by experimental processes. We offer courses in painting and drawing, photography, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics and experimental media (EMA). Students pursue their work in our state of the art facilities, mentored by our faculty, all artists recognized in their fields. http://www.art.umn.edu/
Consulate of Mexico Mission
The Consulate of Mexico in Saint Paul offers services to the residents of Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and northern counties in Wisconsin. Our mission is to represent Mexico; to preserve the relations with federal, state and local authorities and to strengthen friendship and cooperation, according with our foreign policy; to protect the rights of Mexican Nationals living in the district of our responsibility; to showcase the breadth of cultural activities of interest to Mexico and Minnesota; and to promote ties with the Mexican community. http://www.sre.gob.mx/saintpaul/
