The formal mission of The Arts Fund is to create, fund and administer programs and projects that foster the arts for the people of Santa Barbara County; to act as a catalyst which maximizes the effectiveness of arts resources; and to nurture collaborative relationships with other arts organizations. Through the years, the Fund has worked on projects in partnership with the Santa Barbara County Arts Commission, CAMA, The Contemporary Arts Forum, the Santa Barbara City Schools, and Santa Barbara Visual Arts.
In 2001 we opened our own gallery where
we hold approximately ten shows annually featuring the works of
local artists including the participants in The Fund's Mentor Program and recipients of Individual Artist Awards.
The gallery is located:
205C Santa Barbara Street
(at Yanonali Street)
Santa Barbara, CA 93101
Hours: Wednesday - Friday, 1:00 - 5:00 pm
Saturday 11:00 am - 5:00 pm
We rely upon the generosity of the private patrons and foundations who support the arts in Santa Barbara County.
