Established in 1951 and renamed in 1990 after its founder, the James E. Lewis Museum of Art (JELMA) brings to life the vision of this artist and former Morgan State professor. Located in the Carl J. Murphy Fine Arts Center, the museum is a multicultural platform of works by emerging and established artists, many of whom have gone on to national and international recognition. With a collection of over 4,000 pieces of art, the museum presents art from antiquity to contemporary times, including 19th- and 20th-century American, European and traditional African art. The museum also displays the art of Morgan State faculty members and students.
