There are very few community places in Silicon Valley where artists can work, learn, display their work and interface with other artists. The Pacific Art League is an oasis in the middle of an ever increasing concrete jungle! People of all ages will find interesting art classes to explore.

The Pacific Art League has been a cultural asset for many years, not only to Palo Alto but also to the South Peninsula area as well.
As an artist and an “aficionado”, I have benefited from the offerings presented by the talented and hard working artists and volunteers of the PAL membership.

Their efforts have never been more appreciated than at the present as they continue to mount excellent and diverse exhibitions under the current difficult circumstances created by the major construction work being done on their primary headquarters. Kudos, PAL!
