About the Museum:
The Santa Paula Art Museum features rotating exhibitions of regional art, educational programming for children and adults, artist talks and demonstrations, musical performances, a gift shop, and more. The Museum's permanent collection includes over 200 historical and contemporary works of art. The Santa Paula Art Museum is also in part the repository and exhibition hall for the Santa Paula civic art collection. This extraordinary assemblage is composed of nearly 300 award-winning entries from the annual Santa Paula Art Show begun in 1937. The Museum is housed within the historic Limoneira Building. Built in 1924, the classic two-story structure was designed by the famed local architect Roy Wilson, Sr. to accommodate the offices of the Limoneira Company. The architectural details of the exterior of the building hint at the interior's handsome wood paneling, soaring windows, and stunning atrium. Through a lease agreement with the Limoneira Company, their former headquarters was renovated and reopened as the Santa Paula Art Museum in 2010. The slideshow and video below reveal the remarkable story of how the local landmark was transformed from a 20th century office space to a 21st century art museum.
