We Are All Sacred: Student Acquisitions on Identity, Community, and Enduring Existence showcases the forty-five artworks in the de Saisset Museum's permanent collection that were selected by SCU undergraduate students for the museum to purchase through Class Acquisitions Projects between 2006-2019. These projects, an ongoing collaboration with SCU's Department of Art and Art History, provide a unique experience for students to learn about museum collection management and help shape our collection for the future.
The Santa Clara Valley has a rich and dynamic history. Through historical objects and artifacts, the permanent California Stories exhibition traces the story of the site where Santa Clara University now stands, from Native California to the founding of Mission Santa Clara de Asís, through the Rancho Period and Gold Rush, and up to the early years of Santa Clara College.
