Upcoming Exhibitions

Currents + FLUX

_RG_2805Currents and FLUX are two new Monterey Museum of Art exhibition spaces dedicated to recognizing the work of emerging and evolving California artists.

Currents exhibits a range of media, styles and genres, displaying selected artwork of one artist per exhibition.  FLUX showcases smaller three-dimensional works of unique crafting and design.

Both of these engaging platforms serve the MMA’s mission of connecting people and art by providing a space for California artists to share their talents, cultures, and perspectives.

The new exhibits also enrich visitors’ experiences by inspiring involvement in the arts and providing fresh ideas and new trends in contemporary art.

The Museum is pleased to enhance the impact of these artists by offering their works of art for purchase with 75% of the proceeds going directly to the artist.  The remaining 25% are used to support programming and exhibitions at MMA.
