2200 S. Van Buren
Amarillo, Texas 7910

Type: Art

The Amarillo Museum of Art was formulated in 1967 by a local group of determined and dedicated community leaders for the purpose of creating and maintaining an art museum for citizens of Amarillo and the surrounding area.

Six galleries are programmed with 16 exhibitions per year focused on changing loan exhibitions and art from the Museum's permanent collections. Loan exhibitions present works of contemporary art in all media, art historical shows of American and European master works, and art produced by a myriad of world cultures. Works shown from the permanent collection include early to mid 20th century modernists, photography, European paintings from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries, Middle Eastern textiles, and Asian art from the 1st century B.C. through the mid 19th century.

The building and the surrounding complex were designed by noted architect Edward Durell Stone, who had previously designed the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., as well as numerous government embassies around the world. The 24,000 square foot facility was built, in the late International style, of reinforced concrete and steel with exterior walls clad in brick.
