Monterey Museum of Art


The Monterey Museum of Art cultivates curiosity in the visual arts and engages community with the diversity of California art—past, present, and future.

The Big Idea

The Monterey Museum of Art cultivates curiosity in the visual arts and engages the community with the diversity of California art. The Museum plans to create the Arts Access Digital Studio to produce high-quality virtual arts programming in order to increase accessibility to arts education and experiences. The project will allow the museum to produce high-quality virtual school tours, lectures and panel discussions, workshops, and expand access to programs. The programming will be available to all, including K-12 classrooms, families, and community members who are unable to visit the Museum due to geographical distance, ongoing shelter-in-place restrictions, or a lack of transportation. The museum also hopes to make Art Access Digital Studio available to other arts organizations for programs and performances, expanding their reach even further.

Thank you so much for creating an opportunity to share my work during the pandemic and the Museum’s temporary closure. It would have been fantastic, a dream really, to have had an in-person show at the Museum. Of course I understand the challenges we have all been facing and the changes needed, so I really appreciate your efforts to connect and share my work with the Monterey County community—virtually. Thanks again for your continued efforts!

We’re In This Together

Nonprofits are more important that ever in this trying time. Monterey County Gives! was created to support the local nonprofit community's Big Ideas (and programs). And thanks to your participation and generosity, Monterey County Gives! raised over $7.8 million for 162 local nonprofits in 2020.

MCGives! has now raised and contributed over $35 million dollars since its inception ten years ago. That’s astounding. And wonderful. Thank you to all our Partners, Sponsors, nonprofit Board Directors, staff and volunteers — and each of our 7,578 donors. We did it, together.

The 2021 Campaign begins November 11.
