Mission Statement

Arts Benicia's mission is to stimulate, educate and nurture cultural life in Benicia. This private non-profit organization serves to coordinate, administrate, fund and publicize the arts to benefit the public.

Description

Since the acquisition of a 2400 square foot space in the historic Arsenal area in 1993, Arts Benicia has created an Arts Center and Gallery that has become the hub of a large community of studio artists. A diverse exhibition schedule features the work of over a hundred local and Northern California artists in a gallery setting, providing opportunities for artists at many different levels of experience to show and sell their work.

A 1500 square foot classroom next door to the gallery hosts a year round schedule of 4 to 8 week sessions in painting, drawing, and printmaking, plus workshops in pastels, plein air painting, encaustic, observational drawing, color theory, and other topics.

As the City of Benicia's designated Arts Body, Arts Benicia was instrumental in the creation of a gallery and an exhibition program at the Benicia Public Library, and has implemented the selection and installation of Benicia's public art pieces.

In order to fulfill its broad mission, Arts Benicia presents and sponsors a wide variety of rotating exhibits, programs, events, and performances in the community.


Arts Benicia is supported by membership, corporate and public funding, and fundraising events. There is no admission charge to see exhibits, and docented tours are free to the public.
