As the only art museum dedicated to highlighting Northern California artists-those north from the Oregon border, west to Nevada and south to San Jose-the Museum of Northern California Art (monca) strives to maintain a permanent and growing collection; supports an educational outreach program in the schools; and continues its change from a passive to an interactive museum environment. Using collaboration as a positive tool, the museum teams up with Chico’s ten other museums, public/private schools and institutions of higher education, and other art venues to help create a strong art image and destination for the region. Our mission is “to make art accessible and promote awareness of Northern California artists through collections, exhibitions, and educational programs.”
