Inspiration

July 25, 2024 – April 19, 2025

Inspiration. What a wonderful and important word. This Mobile Museum of Art exhibition, Inspiration, is possible through decades of hard work and dedication by the Mobile Art Association. With the seed of an idea to support local artists and bring quality art to the City of Mobile, the Mobile Art Association was one of the instrumental voices in the founding of MMofA and sharing art of the Deep South.

Mobile Museum of Art asked the current members of the Mobile Art Association to commemorate our 60th Anniversary by celebrating many of the works of art they helped bring to our permanent collection. Each of the compositions created by Mobile Art Association members in this exhibition has been inspired by one of many highlights their efforts have added to our holdings, including paintings by Roger Brown, Alfred Thompson Bricher, and more. When you look at these beautiful pieces, you will likely experience some of that inspiration. Each work on view will offer a brief statement by the artist reflecting on their work and the inspiration piece they selected. We hope you enjoy the exhibition as much as we did in celebrating this unique and special partnership.
