Cultural diversity enriches our world and is an important part of the Eiteljorg Museum’s mission. For this reason, we adopted an official diversity statement (below) more than a decade ago. Exhibitions like Blake Little: Photographs from the Gay Rodeo and our ongoing Out West programming are illustrative of our effort to introduce guests to the many peoples who are a part of Western and Native art, history and cultures. The museum has always been, and will continue to be, open and welcoming to all.
Cultural diversity enriches our world. The Eiteljorg Museum presents the art and heritage of the American West and the indigenous peoples of North America as a culturally diverse story of human accomplishment, adversity and perseverance with respect and sensitivity to all cultures.
Diversity refers to race and ethnicity, but also includes gender, age, religion, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, learning styles, and even thoughts and ideas.
The Eiteljorg strives for a culturally diverse staff, board and volunteer base. The museum seeks the best qualified candidates for its staff, board and volunteer positions from a diverse application pool. The museum wants its human resources to reflect the diversity of its communities and its subject matter.
The American West is a multicultural story; therefore, the museum invites everyone to visit its facilities and participate in its programs.
