Art Museum Of Greater Lafayette
The art museum was founded by visionary leaders in 1909 as the Lafayette Art Association, with the purpose to stimulate and encourage interest in art and to give annual exhibitions, and to establish and maintain permanent collections of works of art. For nearly 100 years, the Art Museum of Greater Lafayette has been a partner with the greater Lafayette community and has grown with the support of its citizens. The art museum regularly offers exhibitions, lectures and classes for the public. The museum’s collection has expanded to more than 800 works of art as a result of donations and purchases.
