The Art Museum's history extends back to 1910, but its current facility was erected in 2007. Newsweek magazine promptly named it one of the best buildings of the year: "This cool and modernist building ... is the first newly constructed ‘green' museum in the United States, designed to be LEED certified."
Situated on the edge of Rosa Parks Circle - downtown's community square - GRAM has become one of the city's iconic architectural landmarks. The works on display inside the building are just as impressive. Collections range from Renaissance to Modern Art, with a special focus on 19th and 20th century European and American art.
GRAM hosts a constant and varied rotation of visiting exhibits, from "Diana: A Celebration" to "Birds of America: Audubon Prints from Shelburne Museum" to "Robert Rauschenberg: Synapsis Shuffle." The museum also plays an integral role in the city's annual ArtPrize competition.
