The event, created by The Association of Art Museum Directors (AAMD) was launched:

“to underscore the ways in which art museums foster community, providing crucial opportunities for visitors of all ages to learn and be inspired by the limitlessness of what centuries of peoples and cultures have created. While many communities have celebrations that involve museum participation, Art Museum Day is an opportunity for our member institutions to coordinate and give back, providing everything from free admission to special programs.”
