About Canton Museum of Art
With a collection of over 1,200 pieces of fine art, including both works on paper and ceramics, the Canton Museum of Art would have no trouble filling its 10,000 square-feet of gallery space on its own. Founded as the Little Civic Art Gallery during the days of the Depression and the WPA, the museum has evolved into an impressive collection of American artworks from the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries. However, the curators aren’t interested in keeping things static. They dedicate portions of their museum to national touring exhibits, local artists, and community events. The museum also hosts the School of Art which features more than 20 studio art classes for students of all ages, scheduling sessions three times a year.
