Monterey Museum of ArtDonate
The Monterey Museum of Art expands a passion for the visual arts and inspires appreciation of California art—past, present, and future.
The Big Idea
The Museum plans to step out of its doors and join the community “in the streets,” by presenting public art displays throughout the region—free for all to enjoy.
The Monterey Museum of Art’s creative placemaking initiative “Takin’ it to the Streets,” will mobilize and raise the visibility of arts and cultural experiences in Monterey County to improve the quality of life for people in the region. As a cultural leader, the Museum plans to step out of its doors and join the community “in the streets,” by presenting pop-up art installations, murals, and reproductions of the Museum’s collection—in public areas throughout the region. The Museum’s public displays of art will contribute to shaping the physical and social character of neighborhoods in Monterey County, and importantly, will increase accessibility to art as the displays will be located in public spaces—free for all to enjoy.
Monterey Museum of Art offers many programs for those in our community who may have not had the opportunity to know how art can have a powerful, positive influence in their lives. Art enriches our lives in indescribable ways, and that is the reason we are happy to support the amazing Monterey Museum of Art.
