Links to California art museums, non-profit art organizations and art centers in California. Art museums and non-profit art centers are very valuable community assets. They rely heavily on memberships and your support, so please consider joining and supporting them. The membership benefits are well worth it and you will be contributing support to important art resources.

Non-profit art centers frequently provide exhibition space for new and cutting edge contemporary art as well as traditional fine art. Besides visual arts, many of the community art centers also provide facilities for music, performance art and other arts, as well as art education.
