The Santa Monica College Pete and Susan Barrett Art Gallery opened at its new location, in 2000, as part of the new Performing Arts Center, to include the Broad Theater, Edye Second Space, the East Wing Performance Space and the Music Department.  The new location and design of the SMC Barrett Art Gallery has created a dynamic space for exhibiting art.

Our mission for the Pete & Susan Barrett Art Gallery is to present a global approach to art making that generates an interest in both new and established concepts of art for a diverse population of students and community. The Santa Monica College Pete and Susan Barrett Art gallery continues to be an important resource and viable teaching tool for faculty, students, and community alike.
