Welcome to AAM

The Museum opens new doors to the arts with the culmination of its $5+ million capital campaign. A new freshly-landscaped pathway leads visitors from the cultural corridor of South Harrison Street into the Museum’s new Mary Lou McAllister Courtyard. The courtyard was formed by both the existing historic buildings and a series of additions created in the 1990s and expanded in 2004. This newly designed public space will provide for relaxation, informal gatherings, meetings, and Museum functions.

The new modern glass A. James and Alice B. Clark Entrance beckons visitors into the Saul Atrium Gallery and other Museum galleries, bringing the visitor into the twenty-first century while also honoring the legacy of the Museum’s historic buildings and traditions. The new entrance brings the public into the center of the building activities rather than into the end of a corridor, making traffic more rational and easier to control. A new ADA ramp provides accessible entry at the same location.  School children will continue to access the building through the existing entrance which will ease congestion. Click here for a virtual tour of the Museum.

We hope that you will find our galleries to be a place for meaningful reflection and dialogue. On view is our Annual Members’ Exhibition.
