History
The Huntsville Museum of Art, North Alabama's leading visual arts center, moved to its beautiful facility in Big Spring International Park in March 1998. The nationally-accredited Museum fills its thirteen galleries with a variety of exhibitions throughout the year, including prestigious traveling exhibits and the work of nationally and regionally acclaimed artists.

The Museum's own permanent collection is comprised of over 3,000 objects and also forms the basis for several exhibitions each year. In addition, the Museum offers reception areas on the gallery level and in the Great Hall for weddings, meetings and other events. Visitors can also shop for local art in SPACE 300, Art for Today's Collector.

Named as one of the state's "Top 10" destinations by the Alabama Bureau of Tourism and Travel, the Huntsville Museum of Art is gaining a reputation throughout the South for bringing high-caliber touring exhibitions to the region. Nearly 40,000 people visited the Museum during A Taste for Splendor: mRussian Imperial and European Treasures from the Hillwood Museum. Another 23,000 visited the blockbuster exhibition Land of the Winged Horsemen: Art in Poland.

In addition to its exhibitions, the Museum offers art classes for children and adults along with special programs, lectures, and musical presentations that add extra dimensions to the art work on display.

Mission Statement
The Huntsville Museum of Art is a non-profit municipal corporation established by the City of Huntsville, Alabama, and governed by a city-appointed Museum Board. The Museum seeks to foster understanding of the visual arts and appreciation of artistic achievement. The mission of the Museum is to bring people and art together through acquiring, preserving, exhibiting and interpreting the highest quality works of art.

On Continuous View
Selections from the Museum’s outstanding collection of Buccellati Silver Animals and American Studio Glass will be on continuous, rotating view throughout the year.

  • Sellars Collection
    The permanent collection of the Huntsville Museum of Art is dramatically enhanced by the recent acquisition of the Sellars Collection of Art by American Women. This landmark gathering of outstanding paintings, drawings and sculptures celebrates the achievements of over 250 talented women artists primarily active from the mid-19th through mid-20th centuries. While the names of many of these artists may now be unfamiliar, in their time these women exhibited alongside their male counterparts, received accolades and awards, and pioneered the way for those who would follow. Today, art historians are endeavoring to rediscover the accomplishments of these artists and to restore their rightful place in the expanding narrative of American art history.

Stender Family Interactive Galleries
The exciting and fun interactive education galleries, ART LAB and A Walk Through Time will be on continuous view. ART LAB provides hands-on activities which instruct on the basic elements of art. A Walk Through Time takes visitors on a journey through major events in art history and includes replicas of famous works of art.
