ABOUT
The Morris Museum of Art, the first museum in the country devoted to the art and artists of the South, is one of the region’s premier cultural institutions. Noted for its multifaceted permanent collection and a rich program of continuously changing special exhibitions, the Morris Museum is dedicated to the ongoing interpretation of Southern art in all its forms and the preservation of the region’s rich cultural legacy. It is dedicated to sustaining artistic inquiry, providing a rich visitor experience, and exercising civic responsibility, while advancing public understanding of the South.

The museum holds nearly 5,000 works of art, including paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, and sculpture, dating from the late-eighteenth century to the present. These works are displayed in galleries dedicated to antebellum portraiture, the Civil War, genre painting, still life, landscape, Southern impressionism, contemporary painting, and works on paper.

In addition to its permanent collection galleries, the museum presents eight to ten special exhibitions every year and a rich variety of public programs, including lectures, readings, and concerts for a general audience, as well as more specialized programs for the museum’s affiliate membership groups-Friends of African American Art, Friends of the Library, Young at Art, and the Morris 100 collectors group-children, families, and school groups.
