The Community Gallery gives local arts organizations the opportunity to promote their programs and services. The Community Gallery showcases a wide range of art media and subject matter. Based in our Children’s Wing, the gallery serves all of our audiences, including children.

Who May Exhibit: Non-commercial community organizations living, working, or based in Santa Clara and/or San Mateo Country serving the public. Priority will be given to organizations located in Palo Alto who are serving underserved audiences, teens, and young professionals.
