The Fresno Art Museum is located in the heart of Fresno, near the intersection of Clinton and First Streets, next to Radio Park. 
 
Exhibitions include contemporary and modern art and photography and ethnographic and cultural exhibitions which reflect and celebrate the diverse population of the San Joaquin Valley. The Museum is also home to very large and impressive collection of Pre-Columbian artworks from Mexico and what is now modern-day Peru. It is the only museum in Fresno accredited by the Americian Alliance of Museums.
 
In addition to thought-provoking and exciting exhibitions, the Fresno Art Museum provides the region's 1.6 million residents with a forum for contemporary and modern issues as they relate to art and culture, films, concerts, lectures, docent tours, and symposia to enlighten, educate, and entertain its visitors.
