The Santa Barbara Contemporary Arts Forum (CAF) provides an arena for the
presentation, documentation, and support of a broad variety of visual, media,
and performing arts representing a wide range of attitudes. Committed to
encouraging the creation and showing of new work of the highest quality, CAF
promotes the work of local, regional, national, and international artists. CAF
also aims to expand and educate the audience for contemporary art and to involve
a diverse constituency. It seeks to promote critical awareness and stimulate
challenging dialogue about aesthetic and social issues relevant to our time.
CAF is a non-profit, non-collecting institution dedicated to exhibiting the
highest quality of contemporary art while recognizing "the artists of tomorrow,"
and was founded in 1976 by artists and art supporters seeking a venue dedicated
solely to contemporary art. What once began as a grassroots, artist-run
organization with nominal funding now serves as the leading contemporary arts
presenter in Central California. CAF offers its innovative education and
exhibition programming to the region primarily free of charge. There is no
admission fee because CAF believes that the arts should be accessible to all
audiences of all persuasions. It truly is foundations and individuals from the
community that keep CAF active, inspired and alive with opportunities for
artists, children, and adults to experience all the visual and performing arts
have to offer.
Create The Scene with CAF by becoming a member, volunteering, donating, and
experiencing world-class exhibitions, Forum Lounge performances, and public
programs all free of charge. For more information, visit our website
