Looking down the hall from the Permanent Collections galleries toward the Gift Shop and West Wing.
Baby grand piano accompanies the winding staircase nicely in the foyer.
Pops of color have splashed the gallery walls on the Flanagan House portion of the museum to pay homage to its once original state of being a home in the early 1900's.
Rotating, traveling exhibitions come and go in the West Wing Gallery.  This current show features Freeman Vines' Hanging Tree Guitars.
The GMoA is a multifunctional space for our fundraising events, like the GMoArcade - a ticketed night full of gaming for the community.
Galleries are also used for public lectures for the community to attend, such as Downtown Dialogues.
We continue to support local artists in our community in many ways, through open calls for our Gift Shop and Online Store, auction event fundraisers, seasonal Sidewalk Sales and more!
