The Oglethorpe University Museum of Art serves the university and greater Atlanta community by presenting exhibitions that reflect the academic rigor of a liberal arts education and the cultural diversity of our community. OUMA puts theory into practice by providing a creative stage for the development of museum professionals. OUMA also engages the public through exhibitions and educational programming founded on the principles of excellence and social service.
OUMA provides free general admission and low or no cost programs for students and the public. Each year we bring unique events and exhibitions to the region and highlight the work of artists who are traditionally marginalized through our focus on underserved populations, equity, and accessibility.
