The Map and the Territory: 100 Years of Collecting at UCLA

Did you know? UCLA has collected over 14 million objects, including rare books, art works, films, musical instruments, and even birds and meteorites! Much of UCLA’s vast collection has never been seen by the public… until now!

In celebration of UCLA’s Centennial, a major exhibition organized by the Fowler Museum in partnership with the Hammer Museum and the UCLA Libraries will share with the public, as never before, the remarkably diverse collections of UCLA.

Join us in our campaign by being 1 of 100 donors making a gift of ANY SIZE in celebration of this groundbreaking exhibition.

about UCLA Collects!

objects on display

All of these objects are held within UCLA’s archives and storage vaults, not usually accessible to public view.

Slated to open on April 5, 2020, The Map and the Territory: 100 Years of Collecting at UCLA is organized around three themes: Borders and Boundaries, The Built Environment, and The Beyond. From Ray Bradbury’s The Martian Chronicles to historic maps and photographs of Los Angeles to a stunning Mark Bradford canvas or an African mask, the exhibition demonstrates the ways collections make meaning, and illuminate pathways to knowledge and understanding.

Be a part of this historic UCLA milestone and support one of Los Angeles’ best kept secrets! Your donation of any size directly supports the presentation of this ambitious exhibition and its rich roster of educational programs that will serve the UCLA community, K-12 students and teachers, art lovers, scholars, and more.
