Springfield Art Museum

1111 East Brookside Drive
Springfield, MO 65807



In 1926, a small group of women led by Deborah D. Weisel started an Art Study Club. Today, we have those ladies to thank for the Springfield Art Museum. 

The Springfield Art Museum is the city’s oldest cultural institution intent on continuing the legacy of art appreciation, preservation and education that began with the vision and dedication of that special group of women.

On June 26, 1928, the group successfully incorporated as the Springfield Art Museum and immediately introduced Springfield to traveling exhibits from New York, Philadelphia, St. Louis and more. Eighteen years later (1946), the Art Study Club deeded the museum to the city.
