$15 on the 15th

The PMCA has shared the best of California art with the Pasadena community and beyond for 15 years!

To mark this anniversary, we’re launching our year-long $15 on the 15th campaign to raise $15,000. On the 15th of each month, we encourage you to consider a gift of $15 to help support the Museum’s exhibitions, educational programs, and publications.

The PMCA plays a critical role in the cultural development of our community. But we can’t do it alone. Your gift will help provide vital support for our exhibitions and education programs, and it will ensure that our visitors continue to be inspired by the best of California art.

As a thank you, we’ll give you a 15% discount in the PMCA Bookstore during the month of your donation.*
