About

The California Museum of Fine Art (Cal Muse) and The California Museum of Fine Art Villa aspires to create a new paradigm marrying qualities of fine art museum with those of a fine art gallery.  The focus will be on introducing works from world-class artists who will be able to display and sell their art in an intimate, first class, fine art setting.

 

 

We hope to enhance art education by establishing an international collection which reflects traditional foundations and values of art history.  We aspire to be a venue where true fine artists can display their works in an uplifting setting, communicate their vision and enhance art education on all levels by example.

 

 

The California Museum of Fine Art is located in Old Town Torrance.  It is privately funded and available for visits by invitation and appointment only.

 

Our Vision

The California Museum of Fine Art will serve as a South Bay venue for world class artists to exhibit and sell their art, provide educational workshops and lectures and conduct hands-on demonstrations of their individual styles and techniques.
Our vision is to create a museum and art gallery hybrid featuring the unique qualities of both – an intimate world class setting to showcase fine art and give international artists the opportunity to promote art education.
