WHAT WE DO
93 years of discovering what connects us through the arts.
Marin Society of Artists is a non-profit organization dedicated since 1927 to promoting the arts in our community. We partner with non-profit organizations and others to provide a broad array of arts and enrichment opportunities.
MSA and our partners sponsor ongoing programs at the Art Centre and in the community that promote cultural enrichment and the arts in all forms. Our Main Gallery, Flex Gallery & Ground Floor Galleries house new displays of original art every month, most available for purchase.
We foster activities that encourage the general public & under served communities to explore and incorporate the arts and enrichment activities in their lives. We support artists of multiple disciplines at all stages of their development.
