Founded in 1924, and incorporated as a 501(c)(3) institution, the Orlando Museum of Art is a leading cultural institution in the region.
The mission of the Orlando Museum of Art is to interpret and present art for a diverse public audience; to positively affect people’s lives with inclusive, innovative, and inspiring educational programming which will endure as a cultural legacy in Central Florida; and to stimulate creativity, passion, and intellectual curiosity by connecting people from all backgrounds and experiences with compelling art and new ideas. The Orlando Museum of Art will be a cultural leader in the Central Florida community and beyond. Through exhibition of art and educational programming, it will aspire to teach, influence, and broaden the worldview and shared experience of our community.
Annually, the museum presents 10-12 exhibitions on-site and 13 exhibitions off-site, award-winning art enrichment programs, unlimited gallery tours, teacher in-service training programs, video programs, distinguished lectures, art appreciation lectures, studio classes, lecture/luncheon programs and outreach services in its facility and throughout the community. The services benefit individuals, including visitors from all 67 counties in Florida, the other 49 states and numerous foreign countries. These programs are implemented by the museum’s staff, its Board of Trustees and more than 700 volunteers, many of whom are part of its membership of 5,000 individuals.
