“The Georgia Museum of Art is an art museum in Athens, Georgia, United States, associated with the University of Georgia.
The museum is also, since 1982, the official state museum of art. It opened on UGA’s North Campus in 1948, in a building that now houses the university president’s office, then moved to the Performing and Visual Arts Complex on UGA’s East Campus in 1996. In 2011, it completed an extensive expansion and remodeling of its building, paid for entirely with externally raised funds and designed by Gluckman Mayner Architects, New York, that has allowed it to display its permanent collection continually. The museum offers programming for patrons of all ages, from child to senior citizen, as well as free admission to the public for all exhibitions. It organizes its own exhibitions in-house, creates traveling exhibitions for other museums and galleries and plays host to traveling exhibitions from around the country and the globe. The museum strives, most of all, to fulfill the legacy of its founder, Alfred Heber Holbrook, and provide art for everyone, removing barriers to accessibility and seeking to foster an open, educational and inspiring environment for students, scholars and the general public.”
