San Diego's Arts Community Needs Your Voice

Mayor Kevin Faulconer has proposed to slash funding for arts and culture in the coming year by $4.7 million, from $15.1 million to $10.4 million. This is a shocking 31% cut.

These cuts will adversely affect more than 100 San Diego non-profit arts and culture organizations, including MCASD. Together, these organizations generate more thanfive million free and paid admissions and reach over450,000 people each year through visits to schools and community groups.

This season we're preparing to close our La Jolla location to ready the building for a major renovation and expansion that will quadruple the Museum's gallery space, allowing us to exhibit MCASD's world-class, 4700-piece collection of contemporary art year round.

This means a major move for both ourselves and our artwork.
