The Transformative Power of Art

The Whittier Art Association formed in 1934, with a goal of bringing art into the growing community of Whittier.  The Association built the Whittier Art Gallery, in 1939, and began exhibiting the work of many of the most prominent artists in the Southland.  For over 80 years the Gallery has provided monthly art exhibits, at no charge to the public.  The Whittier Art Association and Gallery is a nonprofit 501 (c)3.

The Whittier Art Association and Gallery is temporarily closed to support efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19 and to ensure the health & safety of our community, visitors, and staff. We’re looking forward to welcoming you back and will keep you posted on when we will reopen.  

We have opened opportunities to view and purchase works of art from our Present Exhibit page and the Gift Gallery page.
