About the Orlando Museum of Art
Founded in 1924, and incorporated as a 501(c)(3) institution, the Orlando Museum of Art is Orlando’s flagship museum and a leading provider of visual art education and experiences in a four-county region. Accredited by the American Alliance of Museums (AAM) in 1971, the Orlando Museum of Art (OM°A) is a regional asset and a catalyst for life-long learning in service to the central Florida community and visitors from around the globe.
The mission of the Orlando Museum of Art (OMA) is to stimulate creativity and intellectual curiosity by connecting people from all backgrounds and experiences with compelling art and new ideas.
Annually, the museum presents about a dozen exhibitions consisting of special and visiting exhibitions, as well as ones curated from the museum’s collections. Each exhibition inspires and is enriched by programs as varied as gallery tours, art appreciation lectures, studio classes for youth and adults, bespoke community access programs designed for special populations, and community events like family days and cultural celebrations. OMA welcomes more than 130,000 visitors annually, and the museum’s education programs serve 16,000 annually.
OMA is bolstered by its dedicated staff members, Board of Trustees, and more than 1,000 volunteers. The museum is supported by individual donors, special collecting circles, private foundations, corporate sponsors, and governmental sources.
