The Museum presents nine to twelve exhibitions each year, including one-person and thematic group exhibitions that include a range of artworks, from traditional painting to exploratory new-media installations. Given its location in the heart of the high-technology culture of Silicon Valley, the Museum has a substantial commitment to new work in new media, as well as to initiating special projects and commissions that reflect issues of importance to its communities.
