The Sesnon Art Gallery at the University of California Santa Cruz is a participatory museum oriented program for educational purposes. The gallery organizes an annual schedule of exhibitions that represents a broad range of methods, strategies, media and cultures, in a local, regional, national and international context, with a focus on contemporary practices. The Sesnon Gallery works to integrate these programs and exhibitions into the lives of a broader community. We are open to a diverse audience and encourage interdisciplinary discourse through the lens of the arts.
