NEW YORK, NY.- Over 100 art museums across North America will offer free or reduced admission, special programs, or other initiatives as part of their celebrations of Art Museum Day on May 18, 2011. These museums-all members of the Association of Art Museum Directors (AAMD), and located across the United States, Canada, and Mexico-include smaller regional museums as well as leading international institutions. AAMD's Art Museum Day coincides with International Museum Day, organized annually around the world by the International Council of Museums. Participation by AAMD member museums emphasizes the lasting impact art museums have on their communities, highlights the value of the visual arts in society, and provides a range of opportunities for audiences to engage with the diverse programs that art museums offer.

“Art museums provide a unique and irreplaceable public service, offering some of the best expressions of human creativity in ways that engage the mind and stimulate the senses," said Kaywin Feldman, President of AAMD and Director and President of the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. “With Art Museum Day, AAMD and its members again join this global celebration of the incredible collections and programs at museums around the world, and their commitment to public service and audience engagement."
