- The FAM staff is what REALLY makes the Fresno Art Museum such a special place. Knowledgeable, friendly and approachable folks in front of the public, and some extremely creative and artistic people that design the exhibits. – ArtIsEverywhere, TripAdvisor
Fresno Art Museum
In the late 1940s, a group of artists came together to create the Fresno Arts League—a forum for art exhibition and critique. Their inspiration lives on today at Fresno Art Museum, a hub for artistic culture. The museum houses a permanent collection of pre-Columbian Mesoamerican art exhibits by the likes of Norman Rockwell and Ansel Adams. Members get more than entry to the museum; they also receive free access to opening receptions and Conversations with The Artists events, among other benefits.
