About the Museum
The Torrance Art Museum is a program of the Cultural Services Division of the City of Torrance Community Services Department. The Cultural Services Division is responsible for City-sponsored arts and cultural initiatives held at the Torrance Cultural Arts Center and throughout the City.
Through its emphasis on contemporary artistic expression in Southern California, the Torrance Art Museum brings together visual artists and community members; fosters personal and civic well being by inspiring understanding and appreciation of the visual arts; promotes meaningful experiences in the arts to strengthen creative and critical thinking skills; and builds bridges between the visual arts and other disciplines in the humanities and sciences.
Exhibitions have been made possible in partnership with the Torrance Cultural Arts Center Foundation, Inc. Educational programming has been supplemented by a generous grant from Los Angeles County Supervisor Don Knabe and his Arts Education Partnership.
Admission to exhibits at the Torrance Art Museum is free. Regular hours of operation are Tuesday through Saturday, from 11 - 5 pm. Additional information about special events and upcoming arts programming at the Torrance Art Museum can be requested by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 310-618-6340.
Stories in Art, a program for children ages 5 to 10 years and their parents, combines viewing and discussing visual arts in the Torrance Art Museum. The theme of each art exhibit is reinforced with appropriate literature selected by Torrance's Youth Services Librarian and a hands-on art project prepared by a professional artist. Four Stories in Art sessions are scheduled in conjunction with each museum exhibition cycle.
