SECA Membership

Be a part of the Bay Area contemporary art scene.

SECA celebrates the local art scene, building community among creatives and the art-curious through monthly educational and social programs. SECA members enjoy tours and talks at local arts organizations, artist-run spaces, and more.

Local Artists. Nominated by you. Exhibited at SFMOMA.

One of the perks of SECA is members’ involvement in the biennial SECA Art Award. Every other year, SECA members are called upon to nominate local artists for this prestigious award and exhibition at SFMOMA. Members are invited to studio visits with finalists accompanied by SFMOMA curators, to get a sneak peek and gain insights on their work and process. Then, celebrate with SECA at the Art Award Opening Preview!

Alicia McCarthy, Barry McGee, Tauba Auerbach, and Jim Campbell are among the more than 70 lauded artists who have been SECA Art Award winners since 1967.
 


SECA membership is $350 annually and requires an SFMOMA membership at the $300 Supporter level or higher. Total annual contribution: $650*.
