The Board ensures that the mission of the LMFA is carried out — to promote knowledge of the visual arts in Longview and East Texas by exhibiting, interpreting, preserving and providing educational opportunities to a diverse audience.

Student Board

The Student Board is selected by local art teachers to serve the Museum during the school year, helping with the Love Luggage project for Buckner Ministries, Breakfast with Santa, the annual high school student invitational and other activities throughout the year. The students also help during the summer, assisting with elementary art classes and answering the phone, serving as greeters.

LMFA is very proud of its Student Board and we are appreciative of their help and hard work!
