With a mission to integrate art into the lives of people by igniting their imagination, stimulating thought and generating experiences, the Santa Barbara Museum of Art was founded in 1941. Today, it is home to permanent collections in Asian, American and European art from ancient to modern with particular strength in Latin American Art and Modern and Contemporary Art, especially by California artists.
Acquiring and exhibiting contemporary art has been a part of the museum's focus since its inception and this dedication continues with frequent exhibitions featuring recent acquisitions of relevant and important contemporary works of art in painting, photography, sculpture, drawing, print and mixed media.(read less)
