This non-profit and member-supported organization provides an all year-round programming that includes exhibitions, classes, concerts, guided tours, workshops, and special events. It also offers traveling exhibitions as well as internship opportunities.

Formerly known as the Erie Art Center, it changed its name to Erie Art Museum in 1983. A part of Discovery Square, a cultural and education center in the city, it also acquired the Ashby Printing Company which is now the Art Museum Annex.

Today, its collection includes more than 6,000 objects that consisting of American and European paintings and sculptures, prints, photographs, crafts, and other pieces from the Egyptian, Etruscan, Roman, and Greek cultures. Its most significant pieces are the Indian Stone sculptures, ranging from 2nd century Gandharan Buddhist stone sculpture to world class examples of South Indian bronzes from the Chola Dynasty and Vijiyanager Dynasty.
