In 1945, Alfred Heber Holbrook founded an institution that was to become the official museum of art in the state of Georgia. His founding gift — a hundred American paintings — is now displayed in the permanent collection. The museum is meant to provide visitors with aesthetic and educational experience of the superior level. Both University of Georgia campus and the citizens of the whole state enjoy free access to this repository of artworks, to its permanent, temporary and rotating exhibitions, educative programs, events, and publications.

The GMOA permanent collection consists of thirteen galleries which feature Italian Trecento and Baroque paintings, European artworks of the XIX and XX centuries, pieces of decorative art, graphics, Southern folk art, pottery, silver, quilts, textiles and more. Outside the building, Jane and Harry Willson Sculpture Garden invites to have a break among the works by female artists.

Access to art for everyone is Alfred Heber Holbrook's legacy constantly fulfilled in the GMOA.
