New Description for the Santa Paula Art Museum
The Santa Paula Art Museum opened in 2010 as a non-profit organization with a mission to preserve and share Santa Paula, California’s artistic heritage including the famous Santa Paula Civic Art Collection; and to educate and engage the community through collection, exhibition, interpretation, programming and outreach. The Santa Paula Art Museum encompasses two unique spaces. The Museum’s primary exhibition space, the Jeanette Cole Art Center, is located in the handsomely restored 1924 Limoneira Building at 117 N. 10th Street in historic downtown Santa Paula. The Jeanette Cole Art Center plays host to rotating exhibitions of vintage and contemporary art, cultural events, a gift shop and more. In summer 2018, the Museum opened the doors to its second building, the newly renovated Cole Creativity Center, located just next-door at 123 N. 10th Street. The Cole Creativity Center is a shared space where creativity is abundant, artists share and inspire, students discover and explore, and where art builds community. The Cole Creativity Center offers a wide variety of creative educational programming for children, teens and adults.
