As an institution, the Carl Cherry Center for the Arts is an enormous idea. For seventy years we’ve presented art exhibitions, plays, workshops and readings that support creative expression on the Central Coast. Just the knowledge and reassurance the Cherry Center is still here is good for our spiritual health, even if we only set foot through its doors once a year.
The Carl Cherry Center is committed to discovering outstanding new artists, writers and performers from all over the county and presenting programs and exhibits in ways that celebrate their worth. Since 1948, the center has remained an iconic locus of arts and ideas in Monterey County, from its intimate stage to its pristine gallery to its serene gardens.
If you’ve ever encountered something engaging or thoughtful or surprising in our gallery and theater, or realized a new perspective on the world, we hope you will show your support by making a donation to MCGives and the Carl Cherry Center for the Arts. A contribution through the MCGives! program can increase your gift with generous matching funds. Please add to the contributions of 100% of our Board of Directors and make a donation today.
