Ian Filippini Explores the Santa Barbara Museum of Art

Most people know that Santa Barbara is a wonderful place to live and to visit. It is a city rich with beauty and culture of different types. Many may not know that there are actually a lot of great opportunities to learn about art in Santa Barbara, and Ian Filippini knows that the Santa Barbara Museum of Art is the best place.

The Santa Barbara Museum of Art is located at 1130 State Street, right in the heart of downtown Santa Barbara (www.sbma.net). It is right next to the Santa Barbara Library and across from several private art galleries, as well as near many wonderful restaurants. The museum itself has its own cafe, as well as store where you can buy souvenirs.

The museum offers free docent led tours with every admission. Ian agrees that the docent led tours are the way to go to get the most out of your museum experience. The museum also offers school tours for grades K-college that you can schedule by emailing the museum.

During any given month the museum has different events and different collections available for viewing. To see what is currently on display, visit www.sbma.net/events or www.sbma.net/collections.

Another thing about the museum that Ian Filippini appreciates is its history. The museum has been open since 1941 and the structure used to be a post office. There have been several renovations and architectural additions throughout the years, but the the building’s original beauty still remains.
