Hammonds House Museum
Hammonds House museum and Resource Center of African American Art is a fine arts museum established in 1988 and housed in an early 19th Century Victorian home. The mission is to preserve, exhibit and increase public awareness about art of the African Diaspora. Hammonds House museum attendees gain greater understanding and expanded knowledge about the contributions that artists of African descent make to world culture.
Hammonds House museum is known for presenting artists of merit and artistic excellence. The museum’s curator and curatorial committee use a stringent review process to select exhibiting artists two to three years in advance. The museum remains sensitive to local and/or emerging artists by providing alternate opportunities for exposure, self-development assistance and avenues to realize additional income streams. Hammonds House museum offers a year- round calendar of exhibitions, panels, lectures and symposia, workshops and demonstrations, youth programming, concerts and other unique events.
