The history of Moinuddin Ahmad Art Gallery begins in the year 1928 when Prof. Moinuddin Ahmad got constructed this Gallery in AMU Campus. His vision was to disseminate the art of painting at Aligarh. It was his wish that his mission should be carried out in future by the committed and dedicated guardians of the Aligarh Muslim University.
The growth of Art largely depends on the growth of Art Galleries. An Art Gallery is a platform which provides recognition to the artist. Today all the metropolitan cities are mushroomed with private, government and semi government Art Galleries which are taking Indian Art business to international levels as most of them are big auction houses.
MAAG provides not only large exterior and spacious interior but also supportive facility for variety of programmes and shows. The gallery has a beautiful ambience suitable for an artist to work peacefully.
Apart from developing a permanent collection the management of the gallery is committed for regular events and programmes specially designed for the benefits of the immerging artists and students of Aligarh Muslim University and visiting artists.
Gallery focuses on the holistic development of the gallery and the art in this region through several comprehensive plans and programmes of national and international levels such as Group and Solo Shows, artist workshops, residencies, lectures and demonstrations of invited artists and various interactive programmes in collaboration.
