The Mission of the Mendocino Art Center

"To be a vital cultural resource, providing a broad range of the highest quality educational and exhibition opportunities in the arts."

Open Wednesday - Sunday, 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
There is always something happening at the Mendocino Art Center

Thousands of visitors are attracted to the region each year to attend the Art Center's annual events, including the Open House & Studios Tour in February, Mendocino Coast Garden Tour in June, the Summer Arts Fair in July and the Thanksgiving Arts Fair in November. The Sunday Afternoon Concert Series features professional musicians performing live in the Art Center's galleries several times each year and artist receptions are open to the public the second Saturday of each month.

The Mendocino Art Center
is a very special place overlooking the ocean from the top of the headlands. We have been a haven for professional artists and all levels of students since 1959. Today the Art Center is still a retreat away from the stress and clamor of the workaday world, where the soul can breath, the imagination takes wing, creativity realizes itself—and new acquaintances turn into friendships. The Mendocino Art Center is an educational, exhibition, and resource center for the visual and performing arts located 150 miles north of San Francisco in the quiet coastal village of Mendocino. The Art Center has earned national and international reputations which attract an impressive selection of renowned faculty members, yet has remained small enough for productive dialogues between students and teachers, professional artists and beginners.

The facilities at the Mendocino Art Center include studios and classrooms for fine arts, jewelry, ceramics, sculpture, textiles and computer arts. Four gallery spaces provide exhibition opportunities to emerging and established artists. Twelve apartments are available for instructors and artists in residence. The Mendocino Art Center gift shop features fine art by local artists and members, and the Center's Helen Schoeni Theatre is home to a thriving community theatre group. The grounds are beautifully landscaped, primarily with native plants and the Zacha Sculpture Garden features not only sculpture but a lovely tiled courtyard surrounded by the art studios.
