Community Culture

The California African American Museum was chartered by the State of California in 1977 and opened its doors during the Olympic Games in 1984. Housed in a building designed by African American architects Jack Hayward and Vince Proby, the building alone is worth the visit, featuring 44,000 feet of gallery space and a 14,000 square foot courtyard with a glass ceiling. Target Sundays are monthly cultural events that feature live music, hands-on art projects and talks by artists, community leaders, and educators. The permanent collection includes traditional African art, contemporary art from the African Diaspora, and modern art, including works from the Harlem Renaissance of the 1920s.
