MMofA Donors

MMofA is supported by a unique public/private partnership of government entities and community support. Since its founding in 1964, the art museum has evolved into the only accredited art museum in South Alabama, with a collection of over 6,000 artworks comprised of painting, sculpture, decorative arts, works on paper, and crafts.

This is only possible with the generous support of the City of Mobile, our State Arts Council, Donor Circle, foundations, corporations, membership, and visits by the general public. We’d like to especially thank the following organizations and people who have donated since the start of our 2022 fiscal year (beginning October 1, 2021).
