Our Values

In 2017, Vision Board, a museum task force of cross-departmental staff, defined the museum's cultural values and named it after REINA, our beloved ritual vessel in the collection. 



REINA Values
The Asian Art Museum of San Francisco strives to always be:

Respectful
· We respect our colleagues, their expertise and their work
· We respect all visitors and their diverse backgrounds, cultures and ways of thinking

Engaging
· We engage all staff and empower each other to innovate and bring new ideas to the table
· We provide visitors with an engaging environment that makes learning easy and enjoyable

Inspirational
· We present exhibitions and programs that inspire both staff and visitors alike to think in new and different ways

Nimble
· We recognize that art and culture are dynamic, and we must be able to adapt to change quickly, both in our internal operations and in our interactions with the public

Accessible
· We aim to make our exhibitions and programs both physically and intellectually accessible to everyone so that all who visit are able to discover the relevance of Asian art and culture in their own lives and are excited to learn more
· We aim to be a place where visitors of all ages, backgrounds and abilities feel welcomed
