Pasadena Museum of California Art presents the breadth of California art and design through exhibitions that explore the cultural dynamics and influences that are unique to California.

PMCA CLOSING

On June 13, 2018, at a PMCA Board meeting, Chairman Jim Crawford recommended that the museum close after the current exhibitions end on October 7, 2018. The vote was made final on June 18, 2018 and the following day, Executive Director Susana Smith Bautista informed the museum staff and made the public announcement.

 

“The Board of Directors would like to thank all of the donors, contributors, lenders, museum members, and especially our hard working, dedicated staff who have made this wonderful adventure possible.”

-PMCA BOARD CHAIRMAN JIM CRAWFORD

About the PMCA

The mission of the Pasadena Museum of California Art (PMCA) is to present the breadth of California art and design through exhibitions that explore the cultural dynamics and influences that are unique to California. Informed by the state’s rich mixture of cultures and inspired by its impressive geography, California art has long been defined by a spirit of freedom and experimentation. PMCA exhibitions and educational programs explore the ways California’s distinct perspectives and customs have shaped and defined art in all media.
