The San Luis Obispo Museum of Art (SLOMA) is one of the most innovative and accessible museums on the Central Coast. From outstanding exhibitions by California and international artists to classes for kids, SLOMA allows visitors of all ages to indulge their artistic passions.

The Museum of Art, along with so many businesses and organizations throughout California, must temporarily close effective July 13, 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the Governor’s updated guidelines for indoor venues. The staff and board of directors would like to sincerely thank all of our generous donors and members who have continued to support the Museum during its closure.

The safety of our staff and visitors is our top priority and we are looking forward to the day when we can all gather again safely.

Digital slide shows of our current exhibitions are available for free at and we are expanding our youth arts education program to include free weekly activity prompts for kids and teens. Virtual workshops for adults are being added regularly so keep checking our Education page!
