The Vernon Filley Art Museum was designed as a cultural center to enhance the quality of life for the community of Pratt. It now provides access to the arts that was not previously available to the region, honoring the Filley family’s vision.

The gallery, which displays a large collection of Southwestern art, is located adjacent to the existing public library, creating a fine arts hub in Pratt. The museum contains two galleries and a collections space that can be converted to a third gallery. Preservation of artwork and artifacts was a critical concern, and as a result the design addresses many climate control challenges.

To accommodate the museum’s limited staff, the lobby and surrounding galleries were designed for visibility and accessibility. An exterior courtyard and open lobby space serve public events and gatherings. In addition, public schools have the opportunity to access the museum and to participate in art classes intended to nurture artistic development.
