SLOMA is proud to bring its art into the community through in-school programs, volunteer opportunities and other activities.


Awaken partnership with county schools

SLOMA, in partnership with the San Luis Obispo Office of Education, is launching AWAKEN, a countywide student arts program to encourage and showcase student artists for the 2018-19 school year. The program will culminate in three distinctly different themed exhibitions, installed at SLOMA by the museum’s professional curator(s).

Winter Exhibition: Nature
