About Miniatures
Miniatures is the Monterey Museum of Art’s annual exhibition fundraiser. Celebrate our local community of artist members, all museum members, who generously donate their original artwork to help raise funds in support of museum exhibitions and programs. Choose from a diverse selection of paintings, photography, prints, sculpture, and a variety of mixed media on display. Everyone has the opportunity to win their favorite pieces by purchasing raffle tickets.
Artwork Drop-off
This year, Miniatures 2014 will be presented in the beautiful Jane and Justin Dart Galleries at our La Mirada location. The list of Miniatures artists will be posted on our website by Monday, August 18. All artwork drop-off to MMA La Mirada must occur during open Museum hours from Monday, September 1–22, 2014. Late submissions will not be accepted. Miniatures is a family-friendly event. We reserve the right to reject any entry that may be considered offensive to visitors.
