Originally founded as an alternative arts space for artists and art supporters seeking a venue dedicated solely to contemporary art, the Santa Barbara Contemporary Arts Forum is dedicated to world-class exhibitions and diverse media in the field of art. In 2012, trustees guided the organization toward the next step in its history, and CAF became Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara.
Located between Los Angeles and San Francisco, the Contemporary Arts Forum established itself as the premier contemporary art museum in Central California, drawing local, national and international acclaim.
Contemporary art is the art of today, and the gallery’s mission was to provide a forum for exhibiting artists working in all media to reflect on current issues. The story we told was about inviting viewers to adopt new models of observing, engaging and exploring work that shapes our society and the world.
