For most of us, art is something that inspires us and impacts us. Seeing something like Monet’s Water Lilies in a museum is something that will stick with you forever. Along with that, seeing modern art will also leave a lasting impression. Art is a release for most, it helps get how we see the world out there for others to see. This can be in writing, painting, photography, sculpture, the list goes on. This same feeling can happen also in those who don’t make the art but buy it and proudly display it. For the visitors of Mendocino, CA, you are in for a treat when you visit the Mendocino Art Center. For us at Sea Rock Inn, we love visiting the Mendocino Art Center as well as recommend this center for our art loving friends and guests. Here is what you will find when you visit the Mendocino Art Center.
The Mendocino Art Center is truly one of a kind. Not only does it display arts and helps educate the public on different types of art, and artists, but it also succeeds in inspiring and fostering new artists within the community. They have classes and events all aimed at appreciating the arts. While you may think that the Mendocino Art Center only focuses on one or two different types of art mediums, you will be pleasantly disappointed. They are set up to help with 6 different types of art expressions and have around 200 workshops every year. They really are trying to keep the arts alive in the community.
