Give AND Receive

What do you give the person who has everything? The answer is simple – give the gift of membership to MCASD.  And when you give the gift of membership you, in turn, will receive.

Purchase a Dual/Family ($75) or Contributor-level membership ($150) this holiday season and receive an x-logo insulated tumbler. Or give a membership at the Patron level ($300) or above and receive a coveted x-logo tote bag or x-logo baseball cap.


TAG--You're It!

MCASD's Teen Advisory Group (TAG) is comprised of 20 teens from Tijuana to Carlsbad who meet at the Museum to offer input into public teen programs and study works of art through discussions, projects, and meetings with artists and arts professionals.

What happens after TAG? Read about members from last year’s program and see how MCASD impacted their high school experience and beyond.

Teachers Take on the Museum

The program consists of professional development for the classroom teacher, class visits to the Museum led by both the classroom teacher and MCASD Gallery Educators and, and a culminating event in which students showcase their accomplishments at the Museum.
