What’s New?

Welcome to the Erie Art Museum!

The Erie Art Museum’s website has a new look! Thanks to an Erie Community Foundation Helping Today grant, the Erie Art Museum was able to completely remake the site.

The Erie Community Foundation grant supports a general overhaul of the Museum’s marketing program, recognizing and embracing the changing roles of print, the web, and social media. “The new website enables the Museum to showcase exhibitions and programs in a more interactive way,” Director of Marketing and Public Relations Carissa Snarski notes. “We will highlight exhibits with video, blog entries and more to truly immerse the audience and connect them to the Museum.”

The new website was created by Eriemultimedia, with the assistance of the Museum’s Senior Designer, Andrea Krivak.



Erie Gives Day 2015 proved to be a record breaker for the Erie Art Museum! Thanks to the 113 donors who partnered with us to raise $34,842! We had an additional 30 donors and raised $13,000 more than the previous year! Your generous support put us in the Top 20!

We can surpass last year’s numbers, but we cannot do it without YOU! Please consider making a gift to the Erie Art Museum on August 9 between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Visit eriegives.org and select Erie Art Museum. The more donations made, the more we will receive in matching funds, enabling us to continue our stellar array of exhibits and programming! Thank you for supporting Erie’s cultural treasure!
