Update on COVID-19 from the Mendocino Art Center
With increasing concerns surrounding the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and California Governor Gavin Newsom's recommendation to postpone public gatherings, and instructing all Californians 65 and older and those with chronic health conditions to isolate themselves at home, the Mendocino Art Center has decided to exercise caution by postponing all classes, open studios, and gallery exhibitions, and closing our Gallery Store, through April 30. The Mendocino Art Center buildings will remain closed. Our employees will continue to work remotely from the safety of their homes.
The health and safety of you, our valued patrons and students, and our artists and employees is of utmost importance.
Those of you who have enrolled in a class scheduled between now and the end of the April will be contacted soon.
As a non-profit arts organization, the Mendocino Art Center relies heavily on the support of our students and patrons. The Mendocino Art Center, as well as other non-profit organizations in our community and beyond, could experience significant losses due to the impact of COVID-19.
Your donation to support us during this difficult time would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your support and patience as we navigate this ever-changing challenge. We wish you good health and look forward to welcoming you back to the Mendocino Art Center.
The Mendocino Art Center is a very special place, located in a stunning, rural location, overlooking a rugged expanse of the Pacific Ocean, 150 miles north of San Francisco. It has been a haven for artists since 1959, when founders Bill and Jennie Zacha first realized the potential of this unique community as an artists' colony.
Today the Mendocino Art Center is a highly regarded artistic and educational institution known for retreat-style classes led by superlative artist-instructors. More than 150 two- to five-day classes are offered each year in fine art, ceramics, jewelry/metal arts and fiber arts.
The art galleries feature monthly exhibitions spotlighting the creative works of local and national artists and the Mendocino Art Center continues to be at the heart of what makes the Mendocino Coast an enchanting and vibrant place to visit.
