The aim of this museum is to promote and present the cutting edge in art of all media that challenges the viewer; in an effort to display art that inspires intellectual exploration, the exhibits present contemporary art that makes us stop and reevaluate the world in which we live. By offering art that does not concentrate solely on traditional ideas of aesthetics, the LVAC hopes to awaken in the viewer an even stronger desire to “explore art that examines the cultural, social, and sometimes, scientific or economic, contexts that surround us; to expose, rethink, and represent aspects of our world.” In short, the goal of the museum seems to be the goal of most great art: to shift the perception of the viewer in a way that the mundane world is seen suddenly in a new light, in a new way, that makes the commonplace world transform into something new for jaded eyes.
