Visitors of all backgrounds, ages, races and cultures, can enjoy a safe and relaxing learning environment in order to expand their understanding of the visual arts. The AMA is a place where ďahasĒ are born, that instant of recognition when someone is inspired. The Museum celebrates and promotes creative exploration through its permanent collections, temporary exhibitions and educational programs.The Museum is governed by diverse board of trustees and enthralls visitors with a permanent collection of the 19th and 20th century sub-Saharan African Art, European and American art and rich mixture of aesthetic styles and movements presented in an average of 15 exhibitions annually. In 1996, the Museum successfully implemented an endowment/capital campaign to strengthen the institution. Central to the campaign was the establishment of an endowment and the addition of the Museumís childrenís wing, AMAzing Space.
