AMoA History

Founded in 1977, AMoA has promoted understanding and appreciation of art through three decades of exhibits and educational outreach programs. The mission of AMoA is to preserve, exhibit, and promote visual art throughout Central Louisiana in a way that contributes to the quality of life. AMoA entices visitors of diverse tastes with rotating exhibitions of art from our permanent collection, traveling exhibits from around the world, and exceptional contemporary artists. Educational and community programs are implemented to complement exhibitions. In an effort to become self sufficient and sustainable, the Alexandria Museum of Art endeavors to establish programming that is collaborative in nature, beneficial to the community, and advances our mission. The AMoA opened its doors in 1977 in the historic Rapides Bank Building (circa 1898). In 1998, AMoA expanded and constructed its grand foyer and offices as an annex to the the Rapides Bank Building. In 1999, AMoA was honored as an Outsanding Arts Organization in the Louisiana Governor's Arts Awards. In 2007, the Museum entered into a collaborative endeavor agreement with Louisiana State University of Alexandria, a move that has leveraged the assets and resources of both institutions in order to provide the most benefit to the community. AMoA now also serves as a downtown campus for LSUA classes, and is host to multidisciplinary community events, including concerts and recitals, the Cavanaugh Lecture Series, yoga classes, Second Saturday Markets, and Museum Afterhours. These events support all art forms – film, literature and poetry, songwriting and visual arts. The community-centered approach adopted by the museum proceeds from our mission; the AMoA desires to be the model of a learning and enrichment facility that reflects and exhibits the essence of the community and region that created it.

Unexpected visitor waiting for the renegade tour to begin.
Let's channel your little ones' energy into creativity! Running low on supplies? We'll introduce your family to some easy new ways to make anything in your home an art material after we read What If... written by Samantha Berger and illustrated by Mike Curato. This project has no messy glue or paint. Just loads of imagination and kids will have a blast working their critical thinking skills by imagining everyday objects into art! You can even turn it into a game the whole family can play! #familyart #MuseumFromHome #communitymuseum #arteducation
Like Cindy said, check out all the cool stuff coming up this week!
So excited to see all the art you are posting virtually and I hope everyone is staying safe during this quarantine!! Hopefully people find themselves galvanized to make art during this time but it’s so nice to be able to just look at some and appreciate such remarkable pieces in your collection!! I just wanted to share a cool website for movies I found called Film Festival Flix because it has a remarkable selection of movies to watch!! The films are sorted into specific channels that help you find exactly the kind you're looking to watch. There is an Artsploitation channel Full of films with incredibly unique cinematography and storytelling that are not easy to discover without this helpful central hub for indie films. I definitely think it's worth checking out and if anyone wants some suggestions to start off with, let me know!!
The 54th Annual Tom Peyton Memorial Arts Festival - Call for Entries is open now through March 13th. Festival dates are April 24th - May 3rd.
