Join and Support

Creativity, innovation, and community engagement define Santa Cruz County. For almost a hundred years the Santa Cruz Art League has been the arts organization in the Central Coast that has been working with living visual and performing artists who enhance our County’s creative life. We are proud to partner with individuals and businesses to bring the art of our time to a vibrant community.

With over 30,000 visitors a year, we present 12-15 exhibitions annually in a variety of media and themes and offer art classes for any skill level seven days a week. Visual and performing arts programs take place in our gallery and in the Broadway Play House, our 62-seat black box theater, which also features a thriving youth theatre school led by WEST Performing Arts. In 2017 we have launched Work of Art/Trabajo de Arte, a youth art program at the Beach Flats Youth Center where low income students learn to create artworks for an exhibition, as well as curate, install, market, and raise funds for it.

Over its 100-year history, the Art League has become an irreplaceable community asset. Please consider making a gift today through our membership, individual, corporate, or planned giving programs. Make a gift of any size to the Annual Fund now to provide immediate, unrestricted funds to strengthen the Art League’s initiatives in the community. The Museum also accepts stocks and gifts of property including gifts of art.

Many companies offer matching programs that may multiply your contribution. Please call 831.426.5787 for information on how to take advantage of corporate matching gift opportunities.
