Director’s Welcome

Eyerman-high-res1-225x285Welcome to the Monterey Museum of Art,

This year marks our 55th anniversary, an occasion to reflect on our foundations and traditions while we chart the course toward the future. An in-depth report on our activities and strategic work in partnership with the Board of Trustees is available here.

In keeping with the Museum’s mission, our collections and exhibitions focus on California art—past, present, and future, and the evolving California legacy. We are proud to present works from the Museum’s distinguished historical collections, as well as our holdings in modern and contemporary art.  Throughout the Spring and Summer, new exhibitions and installations at both locations celebrate dialogues between past and present.

2014 has brought positive changes for our visitors, as we are now open at both locations Thursdays through Mondays, 11:00 am – 5pm; and on Thursday evenings at MMA La Mirada until 8:00 pm.  The Museum also offers an exciting range of educational and public programs. Please subscribe to our e-news, like MMA on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, and visit our website often for details. The Museum offers complimentary membership to active military and college/university students with valid I.D. Children under 18 are always free. The benefits of Membership are many and we invite you to join.

In July, we look forward to welcoming Ami Davis as Director of Education and Community Partnerships.

Connecting people with art is our primary goal, and all are welcome. We look forward to seeing you at the Museum, and for our virtual visitors, we hope that MMA will be a destination for you soon.
