Works on Paper Center

Comprising more than 23,000 prints, drawings, photographs, and Asian scroll paintings, works on paper represent the largestarea of concentration within the Museum's collection. Due to the light and atmospheric sensitivity of these media, artworks must be exhibited on a rotating basis and are housed in the Works on Paper Center. Access is provided to scholars, curators, collectors, and others with a legitimate need to study collection material, by appointment.


The Santa Barbara Museum of Art is wheelchair accessible.

SBMA offers Otojoy hearing loop technology to hearing aid users for events that utilize the Museum's sound system. Those interested in utilizing the technology are encouraged to contact their audiologist or Otojoy at 805.728.9114 or Financial Information
