Business Overview

Our Story

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. SJMA’s permanent collection contains more than 2,500 works of art, including paintings, sculpture, installations, new media, photography, drawings, prints, and artist’s books. 


SJMA is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums and is located on the Plaza de César Chavez in downtown San José. The Museum serves 100,000 people a year, including some 40,000 school children, and is the largest provider of arts education in Santa Clara County. 


The Museum Experience and Education (MEE) department at the San José Museum of Art believes that art enriches and transforms lives, and that SJMA serves as a vital community-gathering place, which encourages dialogue about the cross-cultural understanding of art. Through our myriad multigenerational programs and in-gallery interpretation we strive to be champions of the artistic process, intellectually rigorous, boldly open-minded, and accessible to the diverse constituents of the Bay Area. The MEE department values the contributions that artists make to society and strives to connect our visitors with the artists whose work is in our permanent collection.
