The purpose of SMOFA is to provide a venue for artists, some well known and some obscure, to share their work with the community.  The Museum was founded by Max Schacknow, a self-taught, Brooklyn New York born artist, who realized how difficult it was for unknown artists to showcase their talent. A successful businessman for many years, Mr. Schacknow was unable to pursue his dream of establishing a not-for-profit museum until his retirement at the age of 71.  He then spent several years laying the groundwork for this project.  He established the Max and Evelyn Schacknow Foundation, Inc. to serve as the major financial benefactor of the Museum.  Real estate acquisition, site redevelopment, staff training and program organization led to the public opening of the Schacknow Museum of Fine Arts on June 1, 2000.  The Museum is a registered 501-(c)(3) educational institution in the State of Florida.  The majority of its financial support comes from the Foundation, with substantial contributions from community based businesses, the general public and Museum members.
