The Asheville Art Museum invites you to explore our outstanding collection of American art of the 20th and 21st centuries and to discover the richness of Western North Carolina’s unique artistic history.
After being under construction on a major renovation and expansion project since 2016, the Asheville Art Museum will host its grand reopening in the spring of 2019. The new state-of-the-art facility located in the heart of downtown Asheville features a stunning glass façade, a grand, art-filled atrium; and new galleries for world-class exhibitions.
The new Asheville Art Museum will be a celebration of the human creative spirit, a center for lifelong learning and a gathering place for the community. It will feature new state-of-the-art education facilities; an art library; a lecture and performance space; a new ArtPLAYce for families and children; and the addition of a rooftop sculpture terrace and café.
