History[edit]

Located in what was once the Old City Jail, the Pensacola Museum of Art began as an exhibition space for the Pensacola Art Association. In 1954, the city of Pensacola started leasing the building to the group for just $1 per year. In 1982, the building became known as the Pensacola Museum of Art, and in 1988 the museum purchased the building from the city.

Permanent Collection[edit]

The museum's permanent collection includes works by Alexander Calder, Andy Warhol, Pablo Picasso, Leonard Baskin, Salvador Dali, Thomas Hart Benton, Louis Comfort Tiffany and Käthe Kollwitz.
