The Rest is History: Orlando Museum of Art

From a Gathering to a Museum

The Orlando Museum of Art (OMA), celebrating its 90th anniversary this year, began as a small art center with a group of artists who met informally in the early 1920s, displaying and critiquing their work. The OMA’s subsequent development was one of rapid growth guided by community leadership and support. As a community-based, community-supported museum, the OMA targets its services for an estimated 3.5 million residents and visitors in the nine-county Central Florida area.
