Art is meant to touch your soul and to make you feel.  Love or anger, sadness or joy, peace or turmoil, your feelings are encouraged and welcomed.  Standing face to face with a painting is like entering the mind of the artist.  The movement, the colors, the purpose and final creation cannot leave the viewer unmoved. 

The cultural fabric of our community benefits by having the visual arts make our city a more beautiful place to live.  And, individuals young and old benefit by participating in art education and creating their own unique works.

The Bakersfield Museum of Art, Kern County’s only accredited art museum, has been promoting the visual arts in Bakersfield for 60 years.  Help us continue this legacy for the next 60 years!
