Overview

The Mobile Museum of Art includes a permanent collection of approximately 10,000 works of fine and decorative arts from America, Asia, and Europe, spanning periods from classical antiquity to the present day. The Museum is supported by a unique public/private partnership of city and community support; its facility is owned by the city of Mobile, and the art collection is privately owned.Founded in 1964, MMofA has grown from a modest initiative of The Board of Commissioners of the City of Mobile and two private arts entities, the Allied Arts Council, and the Mobile Arts Association, to the only accredited art museum in southern Alabama.

I am not really a fan of art or art museums but this museum was beautifully spread out over three floors overlooking the bay. Didn't really spend much time looking around here because it does not interest me that much.

On the first Thursday of the month Mobile Museum of Art hosts a market from 5pm to 9pm with crafters' and artists' selling their wares. Go early, make friends, there is an outside foodie truck, wine and beer inside. Just a lovely experience.

I have been to several very good exhibits there and found it a beautiful museum with wonderful displays of art. Two of the exhibits I saw were children's book illustrations and illuminated bible pages.

Was surprised to only see a couple of paintings. Featured local artist was nice but, had hoped to see more variety.
