About Monterey Museum of Art

In keeping with our mission, the Museum’s collections and exhibitions focus on California art—past, present, and future. We are proud to present works from the Museum’s distinguished collections at both locations. With the new season of exhibitions at MMA La Mirada we launch that location as our primary venue for special exhibitions, with exciting shows on view now and planned into 2016.   Both locations celebrate dialogues between past and present and we are delighted to announce new initiatives at MMA Pacific Street. It is being “re-imagined” with dynamic presentations of the Museum’s permanent collection, an expanded and more prominent Community Gallery focusing on collaborative partnerships, and engaging educational and programs. These changes position MMA Pacific Street as a gathering place where art, ideas, and community intersect, anchored by our permanent collection. Our strengths are in historical, modern, and contemporary art: paintings, prints and drawings, and photographs (our largest collection area, representing 40% of the Museum’s collection).
