About Us

The San José Museum of Art reflects the diverse cultures and innovative spirit of Silicon Valley. Through its exhibitions, programs, scholarship, and collections, SJMA connects the present and the past, the art of the West Coast and the world. The Museum fosters awareness of artists’ broad contributions to society and engages audiences with the art of our time and the vitality of the creative process.​

Founded in 1969 by artists, SJMA presents modern and contemporary art exhibitions and programs; international in scope, it celebrates the cutting-edge vision of California and Pacific Rim artists. Given its location in the heart of Silicon Valley, the Museum has a substantial commitment to showing and nurturing visionary work in new media: initiatives include an experimental gallery-as-laboratory for artists called Beta Space, and the “New Stories from the Edge of Asia” exhibition series. SJMA is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums and is located near the Plaza de César Chavez in downtown San José. The Museum serves 100,000 people a year, including some 45,000 school children, and is the largest provider of arts education in Santa Clara County.
