The museum's mission is to be an educational institution and cultural center that seeks to provide our community with diverse artistic endeavors while promoting public awareness of the arts, providing gallery space for visual art exhibitions, and educating children through hands-on experiences.
Visitors can find paintings from Toulouse Lautrec on display alongside contemporary works by regional artists such as Kees van Dongen and Peter Max.
There are also rotating exhibits which showcase different themes throughout the year including nature themed pieces during winter months.
The Dishman Art Museum has been host to many events over it's history such as fundraisers or other activities related to local charities such as "Habitatión en el Valle" and Habitat for Humanity.
Often, the museum will be the site of live music performances or other special events such as weddings!
