Who We Are

We are a Guild of active professional artists, with additional membership levels for students and for associate members who support our goals.

The San Diego Museum of Art Artists Guild is a support council of The San Diego Museum of Art.  In alignment with our mission to support The Museum, membership in the Artists Guild requires maintaining concurrent membership in The San Diego Museum of Art. 

The Artists Guild strengthens the bond between the Museum and the artist community of San Diego County by enhancing the Museum’s awareness and appreciation of local artists. In so doing it brings original art by local artists to the attention of art patrons for display and purchase. The Artists Guild membership is not limited by geography - artists around the world are eligible to apply for membership and participate in our online gallery and our exhibitions.
