History

 

MoFA originated as the Fine Arts Gallery for Florida State University’s School of Visual Arts. In 1971, the gallery moved into 16,000 square feet of exhibition, art storage, and work spaces in the newly-constructed Fine Arts Building, which continues to house the museum.  The gallery’s collecting, curation, research, and publishing programs evolved over time, and, in 1994, the gallery was redesignated as MoFA. MoFA was first accredited by the American Alliance of Museums (AAM) in 2003, and AAM granted reaccreditation in 2012 (through 2026). The Museum is currently home to more than 6000 works by historical and contemporary artists, including recent gifts by such notable artists as Deborah Butterfield, Judy Chicago, Robert Rauschenberg, David Levinthal, and Andy Warhol.
