Albrecht-Kemper Museum of Art

The Albrecht-Kemper Museum of Art has one of the finest collections of 18th, 19th, 20th and 21st-century American art in the Midwest region. The mission of the Albrecht-Kemper Museum of Art is to bring the excitement of American visual arts to the region through education, temporary exhibitions, the permanent collection, and the nurturing of regional artists.

The Albrecht-Kemper Museum of Art will be temporarily Closed through December 11th

Fire officials were called to the Albrecht-Kemper Museum of Art on Sunday, November 13 at 8:00 am.  The firefighters and Director, Brett Knappe arrived to large amounts of smoke in the loading dock area, but no active flames. The fire was electrical in nature and quickly contained, however the smoke did spread throughout the museum.

A professional cleaning service is at the museum to help with the clean-up. We are fortunate there was no significant damage. The permanent collection of artwork was in storage because of the Sugarplum Festival November 10-12.

The dates for the exhibitions that were scheduled to open on Sunday, November 20th will now be opening Sunday, December 11 from 1-4 pm. Updates will be given as clean-up progresses.
