MU faculty, Columbia residents and museum associates continue to express their concern about MU’s lack of timeline for returning the Museum of Art and Archaeology back to the downtown area. The museum, currently housed in Pickard Hall, is moving to Mizzou North, or the old Ellis Fischel Cancer Center.

The move is part of the Renew Mizzou renovation project, which will also displace the Museum of Anthropology at Swallow Hall.

Jesse Hall, Swallow Hall and Pickard Hall will all close for about a year. Vice Chancellor for Administrative Services Jackie Jones presented the steps of the project and answered questions at the MU Faculty Council meeting yesterday.  But, department of geography faculty member Mike Urban wasn’t satisfied.
