The Addison Gallery of American Art is a national cultural treasure offering visitors an opportunity to explore the breadth and depth of American art through dynamic exhibitions, an ever-growing collection, and flexible, innovative education programs. Admission to the Addison is always free, and nearly all of our programs are offered without charge. We are most grateful to our many generous supporters from around the corner to around the world who help make our work possible.
