Canton Museum of Art

Canton, OH




The Canton Museum of Art began as the Little Civic Art Gallery founded in a second floor room of the Canton Public Library in 1935. In 1941, a fine Richardsonian building known as the Case Mansion was donated and renovated to become the home of the Canton Art Institute. A new home for all the arts in Canton was created when the Cultural Center for the Arts was established in 1970. Here the Institute began a program to build its Permanent Collection, and expanded its exhibits and art classes. 1995 marked the occasion with a new identity as the Canton Museum of Art [1]

The Museum is located at 1001 Market Avenue North, Canton, Ohio. For hours and admission fees please see the Museum's website.
