Located in the restored 1913 elementary building on the Old School Square campus, the Cornell Art Museum was dedicated in 1990 as the visual arts center of Old School Square.
The Museum strives to show contemporary artists who create innovative and provocative works of art. Inquisitive visitors enjoy intriguing pieces of artwork while discovering new artists and styles. The Museum exposes the community to artwork that is culturally relevant and exciting, hoping to foster creativity and inspire imagination. Museum shows typically begin with a theme and blossom into dynamic group exhibitions that excite visitors from all backgrounds.
The Cornell Art Museum’s Art Walk Gallery features month-long, pop-up exhibits of works by local artists. Each exhibit opens on the first Friday of the month as part of Delray’s First Friday Art Walk event, an open house for the art galleries in downtown Delray Beach.
Come see yourself in the art!
The Cornell Art Museum welcomes Lynn University Photography Students as the Spotlight Gallery feature for the month of March!
