Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara (MCA Santa Barbara) advances creativity and inspires critical
thinking through meaningful engagement with the art of our time.
MCASB was founded as Santa Barbara Contemporary Arts Forum (CAF) in 1976 by artists and supporters
seeking a venue that was dedicated solely to contemporary art. These initial organizers envisioned a
"forum" for the display of and discussion about artwork being made today, both locally and in the larger
national and international art community.
MCA Santa Barbara is a non-profit, non-collecting museum dedicated to the exhibition, education, and
cultivation of the arts of our time. Formerly Santa Barbara Contemporary Arts Forum (CAF), MCA Santa
Barbara is the premier venue for contemporary art between Los Angeles and San Francisco.
MCA Santa Barbara is located at the Paseo Nuevo Shopping Center Upper
Arts Terrace in downtown Santa Barbara, CA. Visit our second location, MCA Satellite @ Hotel Indigo Santa Barbara at 121 State Street
