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 hopes to offer multimedia interactives and hands-on activities within the museum’s gallery spaces as a way to increase accessibility and transform the visitor experience. The museum has had an overwhelmingly positive response to recently installed interactive iPad drawing stations. Multi-sensory interactions deepen the visitor experience, and also accommodate those with accessibility or learning differences. Importantly, the in-gallery multimedia interactives and hands-on activities will help the Monterey Museum of Art to showcase a wider variety of artists and mediums, offer new ways of looking at and engaging with art and contribute to increasing accessibility to quality art experiences.

Once again, as we look over the last year, we find that the Monterey Museum of Art is at the top of our list of community partners that deeply enriched the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute member experience. Many memories have been created at OLLI, but few as memorable as the morning spent viewing extraordinary works of art at MMA. Equal parts enrichment and delight, we had a lovely time at the museum. MMA is a cultural gem. For all the beauty and wisdom you share with the community through your dazzling exhibitions and educational offerings, our gratitude is yours.

We Did It, Together!

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 $5.3 million for 163 local nonprofits in 2019.

MCGives! has now raised and contributed over $27 million dollars since its inception ten years ago. That’s astounding. And wonderful.

Look for the 2020 Monterey County Gives! RFP (for applying nonprofits) in the Monterey County Weekly this June/July. Monterey County Gives! 2020 campaign kicks off in early November.

Thank you to all our Partners, Sponsors, nonprofit Board Directors, staff and volunteers — and each of our 4,902 donors. We did it, together.
