Museum, Art Festivals and Museums in Monterey

Art, music and culture converge in the Monterey Peninsula. Monterey has been a past and present home to many artists and creative individuals including photographers Ansel Adams, Edward Cole and Brett Weston; painters Armin Carl Hansen, William Ritschel, Francis McComas and E. Charlton Fortune; sculptor Jo Mora, creator of the monumental bronze sarcophagus of Father Serra in Carmel Mission; even cartoonist Hank Ketcham, whose pen brought to life Dennis the Menace. Local Monterey authors like John Steinbeck, Robinson Jeffers, Robert A. Heinlein, Henry Miller, Ed Ricketts, and Robert Louis Stevenson have all lived in and written about the Monterey Peninsula.

Enrich your visit by stopping by a local art gallery, museum, library, festival event, historic adobe, or public garden and find inspiration in the creativity that flourishes throughout Monterey County.
