Welcome to The Alternative Museum (TAM)
The Alternative Museum was originally founded in 1975 as the Alternative Center for International Arts Inc. TAM served the public with more than 375 exhibitions and over 500 concerts and panel discussions as it provided a new paradigm for contemporary arts institutions. Projects focused on the pressing social and political issues of our times.

The TAM mantra was, "Behind the issues and ahead of the times."

We hope you enjoy your visit.
