Established in 1988 with the purchase of the art collection and historic home of the late Dr. Otis T. Hammonds, a prominent Atlanta physician and a passionate arts patron, the Hammond Museum is dedicated to the mission of preserving the work and heritage of African-American artists through educational outreach programs, utilizing local and national artists, scholars, critics and cultural experts provide public seminars, lectures and workshops.
The Museum boasts a permanent collection of more than 350 works dating from the mid-19th century by artists from America, Africa, and the Caribbean. Highlights of the collection include 18 works by master artist Romare Bearden and the oldest known painting by acclaimed landscape artist Robert S. Duncanson. Benny Andrews, Elizabeth Catlett, Sam Gilliam, Richard Hunt, Jacob Lawrence, P.H. Polk, Hale Woodruff, and James Van Der Zee are among the scores of important regional, national, and international artists represented in the collection.
