Celebrating a sense of place and togetherness, despite the distance

As we practice safe distancing and sheltering at home, our popular Annual Benefit Lawn Party over Memorial Day Weekend was cancelled. Rather than gathering on a local lawn with good food, good drink, and good music to share in the beauty and bounty of this unique coastal heaven together, we created a virtual “Party of Lawns!” and invite you to join us! Many thanks to the members and donors who sent in photos of their yards, gardens, and views to share with Bolinas Museum friends near and far! Danny Vitali, one of the talented band members of our favorite lawn party band, High Tide Collective, provided the music.

Despite the social distance, in the words of Point Reyes musician Danny Vitali, we here at Bolinas Museum hope you “never feel alone.” With your support, Bolinas Museum will always be a welcoming gathering place dedicated to community and coastal Marin art, history, and culture.

    Virtual Event

    Brown Bag Lunch Science Lecture with Don Jolley: Does Earth Have a Memory?

    In collaboration with Point Reyes National Seashore Association

    Does Earth have a memory? (... and if it does, what does it remember?) How do we make sense of a story extending 4.5 billion years into the past? And what events in that long history have left their marks most indelibly on the planet we call home. Please join us in a fun and engaging introduction to the concept of deep time, presented as a backdrop for better understanding not only the world of the past, but also the world of today, and where we might be headed in the world of tomorrow.

    Pandemic Porch & Gate Community Portrait Project: Together Alone

    Despite our separation, our community remains robust, Together Alone. To document this strange and complex moment in history as we shelter-in-place, Bolinas Museum is partnering with local professional photographers to take black & white portraits of the Bolinas community. Everyone sheltering-in-place in Bolinas is invited to participate between Mother's Day and Father's Day.

The mission of the Bolinas Museum is to collect, preserve, and exhibit the art and history of coastal Marin and to present exhibitions and events that provide inspiration and cultural enrichment to residents and visitors alike.
