Overview
The Spelman College Museum of Fine Art, which is located on the historic Spelman College campus, was established in 1996 with major financial support from Drs. William and Camille Cosby through the Clara Elizabeth Jackson Carter Foundation. For more than 50 years the College’s permanent collection was distributed throughout the campus and displayed in various offices and dormitories. When campus-wide distribution of art was disbanded in 1996, the Museum became the nucleus of the College’s art collecting, preservation, and exhibition efforts.

The Museum has distinguished itself for its unique mission and highly regarded exhibitions. While it is an academic resource, the Museum consistently expands art offerings in Atlanta and complements local, regional, national, and international resources.
