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.

What’s New?

Second Sundays:
Free Family Program

November 13 from 2-4PM

Spend time contemplating the absurd, playful yet terrifying art of Dietrich Wegner. Take a closer look at the Cumulus Brand photographs and learn about the artist’s inspiration, selection and application of these logos on the branded babies. Head to the Special Events Room to draw your own temporary tattoo design and then painlessly apply it to the skin.

Good News! The Erie Art Museum has been awarded a three-year Museums for America grant from the federal Institute of Museum and Library Services. One of only 206 projects funded nationwide, the $150,000 grant will enable the Museum to continue the Kids as Curator program into its 15th year!

Annually, the Erie Art Museum partners with three different middle school populations (one suburban, one rural, and one inner-city) and Erie Arts & Culture’s arts-in-education program to produce Kids As Curators. The program trains and supports teachers and resident artists who institute creative, cross-disciplinary projects with their students, connecting real-life experiences to the formal curriculum.
