Upcoming Exhibitions

Virtual Miniatures 2020



The Monterey Museum of Art is excited to announce that our favorite community fundraising exhibition Miniatures will be held virtually this year! That means even more artists can participate than ever before and all can enjoy the entire Miniatures exhibition from the comfort and safety of their own homes.

Celebrate our local community of artists, all Museum Members, who generously donate original artwork in support of the Museum.  A diverse selection of paintings, photographs, prints, sculpture, and mixed media works will be available to view online. In the interests of the health and safety of our community we will not be holding an in-person exhibition this year.

The Museum is grateful to all the artists participating in Miniatures, enabling the Museum to raise funds to present dynamic exhibitions, conserve collection artworks, develop meaningful educational experiences, and serve broader audiences. The wellbeing of our community, members, and staff is our top priority and we appreciate your patience and flexibility as we continue to offer high quality exhibitions and programs while keeping everyone safe and healthy
