– To our Valued Patrons and Partners –


We are disappointed that Stanislaus County remains under Purple Tier restrictions due to the spread and impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. We continue to follow the directives of public health officials, and indoor museum operations are not permitted at this time. Retail operations are allowed with limited capacity, so our Allen Family Members’ Gallery & Gift Shop is open for retail customers (two at a time)


Our most recent Lobby Gallery exhibition, In This Time, continues in our Virtual Exhibition Gallery (click on the Exhibitions tab at the top of this page). A new Lobby Gallery exhibition, Surfaces: Works by Kate Jackson, Dana Mano-Flank, Denise Oyama Miller and Michelle Park, will be installed and on view from January 27 through April 25. We remain optimistic that there will be plenty of time to view and enjoy the work of these four creative and inspiring artists. Images from that exhibition will also be presented in our Virtual Gallery.

We are hopeful that our next Ferrari Gallery show will open on schedule on March 24. In the Fields of the North/En los campos del norte includes more than 50 photographs by artist David Bacon capturing many aspects of the daily lives of migrant farm workers along the west coast. This important exhibition is traveled by our friends at Exhibit Envoy, produced in partnership with the California Rural Legal Assistance and the Binational Front of Indigenous Organizations.

While we wait for the chance to gather again, we have introduced some fun virtual Family Friday activities with videos and work sheets available through links on our Facebook page.

Keep an eye on our Facebook page and here on our website for the most up to date information, or call our office with any questions (209-632-5761, x104). We look forward to seeing you soon!

With sincere thanks to our wonderful 2020-21 Season Sponsors, loyal members, and generous supporters, we look forward to being able to see everyone soon. Please help slow the spread!​
