Marin Art and Garden Center
The Marin Art and Garden Center (“MAGC”) is a nonprofit organization with 11 acres of historic gardens in Ross, California, open to the public. According to the MAGC.org website, “the Center was incorporated in 1945, its primary mission to promote appreciation and education of the arts, horticulture and environmental conservation.”
“The Marin Art and Garden Center had its origin in the 1940’s as a vision of two members of the Marin Conservation League, Caroline Livermore and Gladys Smith. Using the Allied Arts Guild in Menlo Park as a model, they envisioned a self-supporting colony of artists and crafts persons creating and selling their wares within a park-like setting.”
The Center also houses the Ross Valley Players theater, the Tamalpais Conservation Club, and other resident groups. For current events and concerts at MAGC, go to their Event Calendar.
