The Milton Art Museum at Massasoit houses a permanent collection of fine art, limited prints, sculpture, photography, and Asian art. We're proud to have names like Remington, Chagall, and Dali right here in our neighborhood. The Museum is a treasure to all and an active resource for cultural exposure.
Revolving exhibitions feature local and national professional artists as well as students of all levels. Festive opening receptions showcase local musical talent and provide an opportunity for museum visitors, friends, and colleagues to enjoy and learn about the many forms of art.
Innovative gallery activities serve to further the educational mission of the Milton Art Museum.
Among the museum's treasures, you will find that many of the pieces on exhibit are donated or on loan from supporters with a passion and dedication to the arts. We welcome your support through sponsorships, gifts, donations, grants, membership, and volunteer service.
The Milton Art Museum is moving ever forward to bring excitement, enrichment, and awareness to our growing facility. We'll hope you remember to visit the Milton Museum at Massasoit.
Established in 1986 as a 501(c)3, the Milton Art Museum was located at the Cunningham Elementary School. The collection was a resource to the students and an active after school art program was offered to PreK thru Grade 5. Classes also ran for Teens and Adults. Relocated to Massasoit Community College in 2003. The Milton Art museum operates independently from Massasoit Community College by a voluntary Board of Trustees.
It's as if each piece in the collection has a secret. Each piece held special meaning to its original owner who's wish it was to donate it to the Milton Art Museum. Items came from local families and collectors who believed art was to shared and the museum supported. From homes, through travels, and via private collections, the museum proudly exhibits over 270 objects of Asian and Western origin. This is the spirit in which the museum was founded.
Our vision is to maintain the mission of the Milton Art Museum which is to exist as a local cultural center to exhibit art objects for the enjoyment of adults and children. Our on-going education program, the support of an active membership, and the dedication of a voluntary Board of Directors keep the museum functioning as a valuable community resource, providing opportunities for education for children and adults in cultural history, art history, studio art, and music. The museum also provides a link between artist and community with exhibition venues several times a year.
Our vision for the future is to continue growing our collection, expand the reach of education programs, and develop stronger financial support through sponsorships, grants, and private contributions. This would allow us to focus more on widening our calendar of events and make a larger footprint in the community as a cultural resource.
