Housed in an Edward Durrell Stone-designed, three-story museum, the Amarillo Museum of Art’s primary focuses are temporary exhibitions and education. Each year the Museum presents approximately fifteen art exhibitions representing original works in all media, periods, and styles, ranging from cutting edge to traditional. Educational programming includes lectures, gallery talks, art classes through our Museum School, events such as artafterdark, 5 in 5, and 22HUNDRED which encourage community engagement, outreach to schools throughout the Texas Panhandle, school tours at the museum, teacher in-service programming, outreach to senior facilities, digital programming, collaborations with local cultural organizations and colleges, and Family Days to name a few. The Museum also makes a conscious effort to recognize and encourage local and regional artists through a variety of events.
Having been accredited by the American Alliance of Museums since 1979, the Museum makes a significant contribution to intellectual and cultural resources in the Panhandle by committing to excellence in maintaining museum standards and best practices. Public attendance for 2018 was approximately 35,000 and AMoA outreach touched the lives of over 7000 students with the assistance of our strong core of volunteers and supporters.
Collections include American Photography, Paintings, Prints, Drawings, and Sculptures; the Price Collection of Asian Art; Tibetan Tsakli and Manuscripts, and European paintings.
Temporary exhibits have featured Grace Hartigan, Dante Maroni, Jasper Johns, and George Rouault, and many other artists.
AMoA is on the campus of Amarillo College and is open Wednesday-Saturday from 11 am - 5 pm and Sunday from 1 pm - 5 pm. Admission is free.
