Re-Start the Arts with Monterey Museum of Art

During the many months that MMA’s galleries were closed, the Museum’s virtual art experiences provided much needed inspiration and connection for our community. Now, we need your help to “Re-start the Arts” as we reopen our doors and welcome everyone back to experience California art in our refreshed galleries.

Since 1959, MMA has been a trusted arts resource and community space. However, the hardships of 2020-2021 challenged us to find innovative ways to demonstrate our continuing relevance. Since July 1, 2020, a core group of MMA staff reimagined our programming to present digital exhibitions and artists talks, welcomed Gretchen Andrew as Artist in Residence at MMA La Mirada, offered our very first Great Pumpkin Drive event, presented our third annual Art of the State Symposium, sponsored virtual Free Family Fun Days, and made our entire collection of art available online.

Imagine the possibilities for art, creativity, and connection as MMA offers both in-person and virtual programs. To fulfill the promise of a reinvigorated MMA, we need your support to rebuild our staffing capacity, to expand programming, and to continue to improve the indoor environment for your health and enjoyment.

At this important juncture in history, your generosity is critical to helping MMA serve Monterey County and all members of our community. MMA is here for our schoolchildren, for our region’s artists, for community organizations, for our region’s creative economy—and most importantly—MMA is here for you.

Thank you for making a difference through art,
