Hammonds House Museum and Resource Center of African American Art is a fine arts museum established in 1988 as an institution of artistic and cultural magnitude, housed in an early 19th Century Eastlake Victorian home. Hammonds House Museum attendees have the opportunity to gain greater understanding and expanded knowledge about the contributions that artists of African descent continue to make to world culture. The mission of Hammonds House Museum is to preserve, exhibit and increase public awareness about art of the African Diaspora. Programming includes lectures / symposia, workshops, demonstrations, youth programming and special events that support the visual arts.

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 who may not
be able to participate in the annual exhibition programming 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 and symposia, demonstrations, children’s educational programming, concerts and other unique events. These programs are offered to engage audiences and stimulate critical thinking for greater understanding of the significant role that art plays in our existence.
