Albany Museum of Art

Albany, GA




The Albany Museum of Art has become a landmark in the southwestern Georgia cultural landscape. Following its conception in the 1960s as the Southwest Georgia Art Association, the Museum has experienced rapid growth, offering today an average of 15 exhibitions annually in six galleries, reflecting various cultures, periods and aesthetic styles and movements. The Albany Museum of Art is the only institution accredited by the American Association of Museums in a 100-mile radius and houses one of the largest collections of sub-Saharan African art in the Southeast. Holdings include a wealth of masks, sculpture, pottery, baskets, textiles, jewelry and gold weights. The American and European Art collections include paintings by Edward Henry Potthast and Reginald Marsh and 160 European drawings from the 16th and 17th centuries. Today the Museum provides significant programs for a diverse population in a 17-county, largely rural area isolated from quality art experience.

The Albany Museum of Art is located at 311 Meadowlark Drive at Gillionville Road, just east of Dartan College, in Albany, Georgia. Please see the Museum's website for hours and admission fees.
