MMofA Collection

The Mobile Museum of Art’s permanent collection consists of an assemblage of American, European, African, and Asian art including paintings, sculptures, prints, drawings and decorative art. Highlights include: 19th century American landscapes, realist paintings from the WPA era, contemporary international studio glass, turned wood and ceramics.

The permanent collection is not permanently on view. Only a small percentage of MMofA’s 6,400 works may be on view at any given time. Works are often used to create rotating exhibitions. Each of these exhibitions currently on view is listed above. Please call ahead if you are traveling to see a specific work of art.
