Visitors Welcome

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.
