Tom Piche, Jr.
Director of the Daum Museum of Contemporary Art

The reason I chose to become the director of the Daum was because of the positive national reputation of the museum and its collections, exhibitions, and publications. The opportunity to build on this noteworthy foundation, to contribute to the advancement of the museum, and to grow professionally was irresistible.

Connecting contemporary art to academics is one of the ways the Daum Museum enhances the quality of education offered at SFCC. The easy access to world-class contemporary art provides teaching tools in a variety of academic courses and often serves as a student’s first art-museum experience.

Education programs at the Daum are devised to engage a broad audience and to offer multiple ways to investigate a single subject, ranging from the contemplative viewing of objects in a museum setting to direct interaction with exhibiting artists and scholars.
