Memorial Art Gallery

Journey through 5,000 years of human creativity: from the treasures of antiquity to 21st - Century masterworks, including Monet, Rembrandt, and O’Keefe as well as contemporaries such as Kehinde Wiley and Mickalene Thomas. Located in the Neighborhood of the Arts, and considered one of the finest regional art museums in the country, the Memorial Art Gallery is known for its comprehensive, well-balanced collection and dynamic schedule of exhibitions year-round.

In addition to exhibition space, MAG also features a range of rental spaces with in-house catering available by our on-site restaurant, Brown Hound Downtown. The Creative Workshop, MAG's educational outpost, features hands-on art classes for all ages, frequently inspired by art on view in the gallery.
