The Petaluma Arts Center will present the first Community Arts Award to the Art Angels of St. Vincent’s High School. The award acknowledges the Art Angels for repainting and revitalizing the long abandoned El Cotija restaurant at Western Avenue and Howard Street Project coordinator Marla Pedersen observed: “Once a gas station, then a taco stand, now a public work of art, the future for this property is unknown, but with the energy it now exudes, one can only imagine it will become something of great worth for our community.”

The exhibit is partially funded by:

Robert and Mary Bailey
The Dayton Family
Patricia and Michael Gorman
MAD architecture
McNeill – Gentry Family
North Bay Association of Realtors Petaluma Chapter of Realtors
Gerryann Olson
Petaluma Art Association
Shadi – From Persia With Love

Grey Gables Foundation
Spaulding McCullough & Tansil LLP

We believe the arts are an essential and valuable component in educating for the 21st century. However, the visual arts are consistently found at the bottom of priority lists. The Petaluma Arts Center not only supports the arts, but also actively advocates for the arts at the local level for all ages.
