Art Museum Day is an initiative of the Association of Art Museum Directors (AAMD).
A comprehensive list of participating AAMD member art museums will be available on the AAMD website, aamd.org. Note that while AAMD’s Art Museum Day and ICOM’s International Museum Day are formally held each year on May 18, some institutions shift their events to adjacent dates.
