Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara
One of our hotel’s greatest influences and past partners, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Santa Barbara is one of our favorite places to visit for art inspiration and education. Hotel Indigo Santa Barbara previously housed the MCASB Satellite museum, curated by the Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara. A community cornerstone, the MCASB Satellite museum provided year-long exhibitions of thought-provoking contemporary artworks.
