Shape the future of the Museum!

The Museum is currently restructuring! We are excited to present a friendship structure in Spring 2018.  If you are a current member, we will continue our membership programs until we launch a new membership system in Spring 2018. We apprecaite your support and patience through this transition period. Please check out our Events Schedule for upcoming opportunities!  If you have any questions about your membership status, becoming a member, or our projects this fall, please call the Saint Mary's College Museum of Art at 925-631-4363 or email John Schneider at


We hope you will join us in shaping the future of the museum and bringing art to the community. Your gift to the SMCMoA Fund will help us advance the six core priorities of the Museum:


  • Exhibitions – support the breadth and diversity of our exhibition programs providing funds for exhibition rentals, shipping costs, catalogs and overall development.
  • Outreach – support outreach efforts on campus and to the broader Bay Area community.
  • Internship opportunities for students – provide students hands on experience in an accredited museum and the opportunity to work with a permanent collection, exhibit development and interactive exhibition materials.
  • Educational programs – strengthen the ability to offer life-long learning opportunities for community members through lectures, workshops and our new Art Chats.
  • Conservation – support the conservation of works in the permanent collection.
  • Acquisition – fund the acquisition of works for the permanent collection.
