Thank you for your interest in SJIMA. We are located in the San Juan Islands in northwest Washington—an area noted for its scenic beauty and incredible concentration of artists. The museum is committed to promoting the arts of the Pacific Northwest and Southwest British Columbia. We offer rotating exhibitions through our three galleries, with approximately 8-10 exhibitions per year, as well as a lecture series titled Art as a Voice.
In addition to exhibitions and allied events, SJIMA also contributes to the community through support for art education in the San Juan Island School District.
During the pandemic, our Family Arts Day Program pivoted from in-person classes to Take-Home packs so families could participate on their own schedules. They were so popular, that SJIMA has extended the packs indefinitely.
As the heart of the visual arts of the Salish Sea, SJIMA champions artists, the arts, and arts programming because we champion authenticity of expression, place, and connections.
