The Brattleboro Museum and Art Center, a non-collecting museum, was founded in 1972 and located in the former Union Station building. New exhibits by regional and international artists are shown each season. The aim of BMAC is to present art and ideas in ways that inspire, educate, and engage people of all ages. Some of BMAC's notable exhibiting artists have included Jennifer Bartlett, Chuck Close, Janet Fish, Wolf Kahn, Chris Van Allsburg and Andy Warhol. It also functions as a community center and is a private non-profit organization. The museum was run by volunteers in the 1970s; the first professional director was hired in 1981.
