As of April 12, visitors are welcome to view works installed in the Arts, Athletics and Community Zones only.

You belong here.
The Cantor Arts Center plays a leading role in the cultural life of the Stanford campus and greater community, welcoming some 200,000 visitors a year. Its collections include more than 38,000 works of art, spanning 5,000 years of history and crossing continents from the Americas to Europe, and from Africa to Asia. We look forward to reopening our 24 galleries at limited capacity. Our vibrant family programs, lectures, art classes and special events will continue online until it is safe to assemble groups in again. We can't do all of this without our members.
