Message from the Director

Louis Meluso, Executive Director

Greetings, RAM friends!

It is my distinct pleasure and privilege to serve as the Executive Director of the Fort Smith Regional Art Museum. In this role, my focus is to guide the museum’s mission forward by developing engaging exhibitions, relevant educational programming, and to cultivate financial sustainability.

Located in downtown Fort Smith, the museum offers fine art exhibitions from world-class artists, important traveling exhibitions as well as emerging artists. In our modern, 16,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility, we offer a wide range of art education opportunities and cultural events. From professional artist workshops and juried art contests to our family-friendly Saturday art making program; we connect with schools, visitors and community members of all ages and ethnic backgrounds to support the cultural needs of the region.

Members are our most valuable asset and are crucial to continuing our mission. I am committed to ensuring RAM members get the best value from their membership. We now offer expanding membership premiums for both new and returning members and unique member-only experiences.

Corporate sponsorship allows us to work with businesses and civic leaders to produce the finest, thought-provoking art exhibitions and expand the depth and reach of our education programming. With your support, we are building the cultural future of Fort Smith. Working together, we can continue to make the Fort Smith Regional Art Museum a touchstone of art and culture in our community and a crucible of ideas, learning and creative inquiry.
