Harold J. Miossi Art Gallery
Mission Statement

The Cuesta College Foundation received a $250,000 grant from the Harold Miossi Charitable Trust specifically for enhancing the role of the Cuesta College Art Gallery in our community, resulting in passions inspired in future Cuesta College students. Today, with Miossi's gift, the gallery can fulfill its potential to expose the community to a wider variety and increased frequency of exhibits. The funding will provide capital improvements, including structural modifications, technology upgrades and improved lighting, among other things. Essentially, the gallery will come alive!

The Harold J. Miossi Art Gallery presents an annual, juried student exhibition and a changing selection of exhibitions by professional local, national, and international visual artists. Exhibitions are contemporary in content and reflect the educational goals of the Fine Arts programs. The Art Gallery course involves students in the installation and professional practices of the exhibitions and various aspects of gallery management. Through stimulating exhibitions and events the gallery program strives to promote dialogue and engagement between the programs in Fine Arts, Cuesta College students and staff, and the community.

The Harold J. Miossi Art Gallery, Room 7170, is located on Highway 1, halfway between San Luis Obispo and Morro Bay in the courtyard of the Cultural and Performing Arts Center. Admission to the gallery is free.
