Experience the Georgia Museum of Art

Founded by Alfred Heber Holbrook in 1945, the Georgia Museum of Art has long offered its audiences a world-class art experience. As both an academic museum and the state's official art museum, it serves not only the University of Georgia population, but also the owners of its permanent collection—the citizens of Georgia—through award-winning exhibitions, publications and programming.

In 1996, the museum moved to the Performing and Visual Arts Complex on UGA's East Campus. A 16,000-square-foot expansion of the galleries by Gluckman Mayner Architects (New York), completed in 2011, allows for continual display of works from the museum's permanent collection, many of which were part of Holbrook's original gift. The experience continues in the Jane and Harry Willson Sculpture Garden, which is dedicated to the display of works by women artists and provides visitors with a quiet spot to visit, eat lunch or meditate.

To this day, the museum strives to fulfill Holbrook's legacy and to provide Art for Everyone.
