Morris Museum of Art, Augusta

1 10th St 2nd Floor, Augusta, Georgia
Founded in 1985, the Morris Museum of Art was established by William S. Morris III in memory of his parents William Shivers Morris, Jr., and Florence Hill Morris. The purchase in 1989 of 230 paintings from the collection of Dr. Robert Powell Coggins, a renowned collector of Southern art, established a focus and direction for the museum. On September 26, 1992, the Morris Museum of Art opened its doors to the public and attracted more than ten thousand visitors in its first three months of operation.
