Meet the new Asheville Art Museum! Founded in 1948 and serving all of WNC’s 24 counties, the Museum recently completed an exciting, $24+ million building project that provides new landmark architecture in downtown’s Pack Square. The renovation and expansion includes larger, state-of-the-art galleries to showcase traveling exhibitions and the Museum’s collection of 20th- and 21st-century American art, with an emphasis on art of Southern Appalachia and Western North Carolina. Curatorial and education staff will introduce the new Museum through a series of tours including the reimagined presentation of the Museum’s Collection, the inaugural special exhibition Appalachia Now!, a series of smaller shows highlighting recent extraordinary gifts to the Collection, and the soaring architecture that reflects the collecting philosophy of the Museum.

Space is limited; preregistration is required. For more information, visit olliasheville.com or call 828.251.6140. Presented in partnership with OLLI at UNC Asheville.

Classes & Workshops

The Museum offers one-day workshops and multi-meeting classes for adults interested in learning more about art, art history, behind-the-scenes, and other topics that reflect techniques and themes featured in the Museum’s Collection and special exhibitions.
