Mission
"The mission of the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts shall be to establish and maintain a museum in order to house and exhibit a permanent collection of art as well as to provide space for traveling exhibitions, for the purpose of the enjoyment and education of the general public in San Angelo, Texas, and the rural communities of the Concho Valley."

Vision
"The vision of the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts is to enhance the overall quality of life for all members of our community through cultural enlightenment."

History
The San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts was formerly located in the Quartermaster Storehouse at Fort Concho National Historic Landmark. In July of 1981, the Museum was chartered as a non-profit educational corporation and funds were raised to restore the former Quartermaster Building at Fort Concho National Historic Landmark. The Museum opened to the public in the spring of 1985 with major exhibits lent by the National Portrait Gallery, the Library of Congress and the Dallas Museum of Art. The museum has since featured numerous exhibits, over half of which have been organized by the museum and most of which have included publications. The National Ceramic Competition organized by the museum was cited as "the premier clay show in America" by the editor of Ceramics Monthly. The National Ceramic Competition was initiated in 1986 and remains an eagerly-anticipated event every two years.

Permanent Collection
The Museum's collection continues to grow and expand. There are currently over 650 objects in the Permanent Collection. Through some recent generous gifts the Museum has acquired a significant number of works by Texas artists, especially works created since 1945 and some important examples of Spanish Colonial and Mexican Religious art. These are two of the areas of focused interest for the museum's Permanent Collection, as well as American crafts created since 1945, with an emphasis on the ceramic arts, and American painting and sculpture of all eras as well as Mexican and Mexican-American art of all eras.

Among its areas of concentration, the Museum has established a distinguished collection of contemporary American ceramics, many purchased from the National Ceramic Competitions held at the Museum. A unique feature of the Museum is its visible storage facility for the ceramics collection, which is always available to visitors of the Museum.

A Building for the Ages
Our building inspires people's imagination and, even though it was never intended to be a metaphor for anythingelse, we are delighted that it has this effect. The Museum employed the internationally known architectural firm of Hardy Holzman Pfeiffer Associates of New York and Los Angeles, but most of the design elements were the result of local ideas and input. In designing the roof the architects suggested a shape that followed the slope of the land and helped create a very high center point so that the roof would be visible and project above the surrounding streets. A large part of our building is constructed of materials from our region.
