Located on the campus of Lamar University, the Dishman Art Museum serves as a teaching facility and has had a positive effect on the quality of education at LU since its dedication in 1983.

The museum offers students an opportunity to experience diverse styles that reflect international trends as well as exhibit their own work.

Further, the museum is a showplace that contributes significantly to the cultural opportunities of the region.


The Dishman Art Museum will reopen to the public on Tuesday, August 18. Our new hours are 9 a.m.- 4 p.m., Monday-Friday; Noon-4 p.m., Saturday. Please check the Exhibitions page for more information.

We look forward to seeing you again at the Dishman. The safety and well-being of the Lamar University community is the highest priority as we respond to COVID-19. Please read the Visitor Guidelines before your visit.
