The museum gallery is located on the mezzanine floor of the historic Lason Auditorium, 1st and Salem Streets.  Additional prints are also on display in the Ayres Hall first floor cases, which are located directly behind the auditorium.

The museum was established in 1981 with an initial generous gift of more than 2,000 prints from the late CSU, Chico faculty member Dr. Janet Turner.  Turner, an internationally known printmaker and educator, felt students should have the opportunity to learn from and be inspired by original art.
