The Daum Museum of Contemporary Art opened in 2002 and is located on the State Fair Community College campus in Sedalia, Missouri. The Daum features a diverse permanent collection and offers three exhibition cycles each year and up to 15 exhibitions. The museum, which includes nine exhibition galleries on three levels with a combined area of 9,300 square feet, was designed by Gunn & Smith Architects of St. Louis, Missouri.
The Daum’s mission is to shed light on the stimulating complexity of modern and contemporary art by collecting, preserving, interpreting, and exhibiting artworks created since the mid-20th century. In concert with SFCC faculty and staff, the Daum works to enhance the cultural and educational life of the college, surrounding communities, and all of Missouri.
