Art Museum of Greater Lafayette
The institution now known as the Art Museum of Greater Lafayette began over 100 years ago, on April 14, 1909. After a “general awakening of art interests all over (the) country and state” Lafayette residents saw a chance to “stimulate and encourage interest in art and to give annual exhibitions, and also to establish and maintain permanent collections of works of art.”
