THE MEMBERS SHOW
The Pensacola Museum of Art was founded in 1954 by a group of forward-thinking women artists who transformed the former city jail into a dynamic art and community center. The group, the local chapter of the American Association of University Women, set out to create a space that promoted art through exhibitions and education. The Pensacola Art Association, as it was named, balanced national exhibitions with opportunities for local artists. 65 years later, we endeavor to continue this legacy. Now, as a University of West Florida museum, we actively cultivate spaces for artistic growth and exploration through our education programs and exhibitions. We are proud to continue the tradition of the annual members exhibition and showcase the rich talent of Pensacola's creative community.
