OUMA participates in national Blue Star Museums program

The Oglethorpe University Museum of Art will once again join museums across the country in the Blue Star Museum program, which offers free admission to the nation’s active-duty military personnel and their families throughout the summer.

The program is a collaboration among the National Endowment for the Arts, the U.S. Department of Defense, Blue Star Families, and museums across America.

The 2022 Blue Star Museums program will start on Armed Forces Day (Saturday, May 21) and run through Labor Day (Monday, September 2).

OUMA exhibitions “Beloved Community: African American Artists in Atlanta Collections and Beyond” and the spring 2022 “OUMA Collects” will be on view through June 5.

This summer’s “The Idyll Before the Storm: The Art of Rococo France” and “OUMA Collects” will open June 17.

The free admission program is available to any bearer of a Geneva Convention common access card (CAC), a DD Form 1173 ID card (dependent ID), or a DD Form 1173‐1 ID card, which includes active duty U.S. military—Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, as well as members of the National Guard and Reserve, U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, NOAA Commissioned Corps—and up to five family members.
