The Mendocino Art Center

The Mendocino Art Center, celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2009, is situated 150 miles north of San Francisco overlooking a rugged expanse of the Pacific Ocean in the charming coastal village of Mendocino. A haven for artists since 1959, today the Art Center is a highly regarded artistic and educational institution offering nearly 250 unique retreat-style workshops each year in ceramics, digital arts, fine arts, jewelry, sculpture and fiber arts. Four art galleries feature monthly exhibitions spotlighting the creative works of local and national artists.
