Tupelo is a great community to call home, and the arts most definitely bring a rich quality of life to our hometown! GumTree Museum of Art was listed as one of the Top Ten Things to Do in Tupelo through a recent survey. For almost 28 years, GumTree Museum of Art has provided high quality visual arts experiences and exhibits for this community and surrounding areas, and individual memberships make that possible! GumTree Memberships make up 30 % of our operating funds. Members are invited to all opening receptions, events, and educational opportunities. Members also receive discounts throughout the year on artwork, workshops, and merchandise.
The GumTree Museum provides approximately 8 shows a year with opening receptions for each of those exhibits. The museum offers educational opportunities throughout the year to our community and area youth as well as provides the largest exhibit of public school art in the spring. The two shows that make up this public schools showcase brings in an estimated 3,500 people into the museum, and into downtown Tupelo.
The GumTree Museum of Art is a cultural anchor in the Tupelo Community. If you have not visited GMA recently, we think you will be pleasantly surprised and impressed with the quality of exhibitions and programs.
