The Pacific Grove Art Center is a wonderfully unique, community-based nonprofit art venue. Established in 1969, early aims sought to offer space for art-making and art appreciation. The founders worked hard to create a usable art space for 17 art studios, a classroom, and four gallery venues. They passionately labored to develop an environment with superb cultural offerings. Today we continue that rich tradition. In fact, we believe that creativity is sparked in an environment of possibilities and support a variety of programs and collaborations that fuel that spark. The Pacific Grove Art Center exists to provide our community with a place to experience and express its creative spirit. Our mission is to cultivate the arts within the Monterey area by providing creative experiences that inspire and engage us, touch our hearts, challenge our minds and enrich our lives.
