We are the home of the Peninsula Ballet CenterSince 1969, Pacific Grove Art Center has been a community based nonprofit seeking to enhance art appreciation and encourage the creation of art. With the desire to have art available to everyone, PGAC has held low cost classes, free exhibits, and offered reduced rent for artist’s studios for over 40 years. Emerging to established artists are professionally shown in our historic galleries, and large group shows can provide the first step into the art world for many. Through generous donations, grants, and hundreds of volunteered hours, the Art Center continues its mission today.
