Owensboro Museum of Fine Art expands and enhances the cultural environment of the region through a permanent collection of American, European and Asian fine and decorative arts dating from the 15th century to the present. Major traveling exhibitions, visual and performing arts, interpretive events and educational programs for children and adults occur throughout the year.
August 6 to October 23, 2016
The dramatic growth and development of the Owensboro Museum of Fine Art in its first 40 years has enhanced Owensboro’s quality of life by its contributions to education, economic development and cultural tourism.
In just four decades, it has become recognized as a regional center for the visual arts, and its programming offers excellence in arts and culture of a quality not usually found outside major urban centers.
The generosity of Owensboro’s corporate, private and public sectors has enabled it to become the second largest art museum in Kentucky and a premiere educational resource for Western Kentucky.
With the continued support of local corporations, philanthropic families and elected officials, the museum will continue building a legacy for future generations.
Contributions from Friends of the Foundation support educational programs for area schools, special entertainment events for families, exhibitions, preservation of the art collection and the historic facility, and help keep the museum open and free to the public six days a week.
Friends of the Foundation receive discounts on museum activities, classes and Gift Shoppe purchases, as well as invitations to gala previews and special events.
