OUR MISSION

Building Community Through Art

OUR VISION

PAC is dedicated to building our community’s creative capacity by making art an increasingly vital and meaningful part of our public life.

In order to achieve this vision we will:

    • Strive to present innovative, inspiring and meaningful art exhibitions
    • Maintain a sustainable, accessible and inclusive space for community gatherings and for diverse artistic expressions and experiences
    • Enrich Petaluma both culturally and economically
    • Provide artistic and educational opportunities for learners of all ages
    • Foster creativity by embracing new audiences and new ways of seeing the world

OUR STORY….

The Petaluma Arts Council began in June 1998, as a grassroots effort to acknowledge and celebrate local artists and their contributions and to involve the whole community in appreciation, involvement and recognition of art as an enriching component of our daily lives.

Ten years later—in September 2008—with the support of the City of Petaluma and a particularly generous donor, the Petaluma Arts Council opened the Arts Center, a 4,500 square foot facility located in the historic Railroad Depot Freight Building, next door to the Petaluma Visitors Center.

LOCATION

We are located in the historic train depot on Lakeville between East D and East Washington Streets, adjacent to the Downtown Petaluma SMART train. Entrance to our parking lot is from East Washington across from CVS.

When: Thursday, June 20th.  Doors open at 6:30.  Program starts at 7

 Bibbero building 1300 N. McDowell Blvd, Petaluma, 94954.

Representing the arts: David Best, 
an internationally renowned American sculptor. He is well known for building immense temples out of recycled wood sheets for the Burning Man festivals, where they are then burnt to the ground in a spectacle of light and heat. 

Representing business life: Jenny Griffo owns and operates Griffo Distillery, a grain to glass distillery located in Petaluma. With a graduate degree from Stanford in International Education and a decade working to support childhood literacy around the world, she has found unique ways to bring this passion for community and activism to her business and the art of distilling.
