To Educate & Create Awareness


Our Purpose

The purpose of the Art Foundation of Santa Barbara is to educate the public on the heritage of art created and produced primarily in Santa Barbara County and along the central and southern coasts of California.   To encourage the efforts of contemporary artists to enlarge upon that heritage, and to broaden the public’s awareness of and access to such works of art, the Art Foundation intends to develop a significant collection of such works of art and then exhibit its collection.  The Art Foundation also intends to organize and offer tours of its collection to educational institutions, various public groups, and other civic organizations.
