Pasadena Museum of California Art

The Pasadena Museum of California Art (PMCA) is dedicated to the exhibition of California art, architecture, and design. 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 cultural dynamics and influences unique to California that have shaped and defined art in all media.

The PMCA is free the first Friday of each month (12–5pm) and the third Thursday of each month (5–8pm)!
