Huntington, West Virginia
About the Museum
For more than five decades, the Huntington Museum of Art has been defined by a vision, a vision of bringing the world of art to the people of West Virginia and the Tri-State region. That vision, nurtured by the generosity of museum founders and supporters, has lebuildingd to the creation of a truly distinguished museum, the finest in the state and the largest between Cincinnati, Pittsburgh and Richmond. It boasts an exceptional collection, innovative exhibitions and educational programs, a landmark facility, and an extraordinary 52-acre site where art and nature blend in harmony.
Today, visitors enjoy the beauty of glass, particularly that from the Ohio Valley; the wisdom and whimsy of Appalachian folk art; the functional artistry of American furniture and firearms; the serenity of 19th and 20th century American and European paintings; and the intricacy of Islamic prayer rugs. They can ponder the exotic mysteries of Middle Eastern arts; the exquisite acrobatics of sculptures by Calder and Rickey; and the marvels of nature's own canvas.
The museum also serves as a point of growing pride for the state and the region - a dynamic cultural center where art and nature educate and inspire visitors and residents alike. The Huntington Museum of Art is carrying the legacy into the 21st century. The Museum is located at 2033 McCoy Road, Huntington, West Virginia. -above information excerpted from Huntington Museum of Art Web site
