About Art California

The voices of artists are instrumental in focusing how we remember our past, in distilling our experience of our increasingly complex world and in helping us imagine our future. In California, our rich heritage of artists, works of art and arts organizations is an important contribution to the quality of our lives and the understanding of our heritage. Yet the names and work of many of our best artists are not widely known, and the places where their work is shown and presented are not adequately celebrated or funded. In 2007, we were a dismal 50th (out of 50 states) in State per capita arts funding. Art California is a project to increase the visibility of California art and artists -- past and present.

The Art California Web

A portal website of access to websites that represent California artists, innovators, and arts organizations, Art California provides access to the rich diversity of the artists and arts organizations in California, with a focus on the non-profit arts, but also including Hollywood and popular musicians. Art California also seeks to make arts websites more visible and easier to find, to encourage arts content on the Internet, to increase the audience for events and publications, to demonstrate the importance of supporting the arts in our state, to serve as a model that could be replicated in other states, and most importantly to generate interest in California art.

Art California includes an extensive list of over 8,000 artists and organizations, as well as featuring selected archives, publications, and web portals. It is a growing resource, and each section is updated on a scheduled basis. Although from time to time some sections may have out of date links, they will be updated as soon as possible. And every week more artists and arts organizations are added to the resource!
