Why we need you

For more than 100 years, the Art Museum of Greater Lafayette* has partnered with the community to celebrate the power of art to inspire, challenge, and instruct our community through collections, exhibitions, and programs. Our museum has grown and flourished because of the generous support of citizens like you. The Art Museum is a private, non-profit organization that receives no ongoing federal, state or government funding. We depend on membership, corporate sponsorships and private underwriting

  • Continue our programming,
  • Open to the public free of charge 7 days a week,
  • First rate exhibitions in 5 galleries, which change frequently throughout the year and
  • Art educational programs and studio arts classes to the community
