History

The original Museum was established by the American Association of Women in 1951 as the DeLand Children's Museum. In 1965 it was reincorporated as the DeLand Museum of Art and 41 years later, in 2006, became the Museum of Florida Art. In 2013, the Museum was rebranded as the Museum of Art - DeLand, Florida, to represent the broader scope of exhibitions and related programming involving works of art from artists across the state of Florida and from across the globe.

In 2011, The Evans C. and Betty Drees Johnson Children's Art Center was established to provide unique educational arts programming for children that works in tandem with the Museum?s exhibitions, and in 2013, the Museum of Art - DeLand expanded into the downtown historic area opening a New York-style gallery and Museum Store at 100 N. Woodland Blvd.
