A trip to the Ormond Memorial Art Museum can include viewing a variety of professional art, strolling through the memorial gardens, reflecting at one of the memorials located on the property or brushing up with a class or educational experience.
The Ormond Memorial Art Museum and Gardens was founded in 1946 by Ormond Beach residents as a living monument to creative freedom and equality of all persons, and to commemorate the service of World War I & II veterans who fought valiantly for that ideal.
The work of prominent Florida, regional and national artists is featured in shows throughout the year at OMAM, and the museum exhibition committee also hosts an annual student exhibition and other unique originally curated shows. The exhibition calendar is varied and includes works in all media and styles.
A permanent collection of paintings donated by artist Malcolm Fraser in 1946 anchors the Museum galleries. The Malcolm Fraser collection has been professionally restored with a generous grant from Brighthouse Networks.
