The Museum of Art and History's magical meld of contemporary art and Santa Cruz County history came into being in 1996, when the art museum and the Santa Cruz Historical Society were fused. An individual membership gets you free admission to the museum's diverse collection, invitations to members-only exhibition previews, a discount to the museum's public programs, and, among other benefits, resistance to the wail of the banshee. Revisit the days of writing on paper and typing with one finger at the Don’t Forget to Write: Correspondence in the Pre-Electronic Age exhibit, which compares 1918 wartime letters with 2010 Facebook posts and showcases out-of-date communication methods, such as typewriters, fountain pens, and styrofoam cups connected by floss. Machines of Memory: Sculpture and Works on Paper by Joseph Zirker, an exhibit about the Bay Area printmaker's innovative work and methods, displays three- and two- dimensional compositions aglow with biomorphic shapes and symbols.

Since 1969, the San Jose Museum of Art has acquired works that define the art of the time. Over the decades, that has included abstract paintings from the mid-20th century, sculptures from Bay Area artists, and new media works that echo the rise of Silicon Valley. Many have been drawn to the museum's artistic cause; in fact, more than 95% of the permanent collection has come from donations. Inside the Rotating Collection: paintings, sculpture, installations, new media, photography, drawings, prints, and artist's books. Exhibits this fall include Robert Henri's California Portraits, Momentum: an experiment in the unexpected, David Levinthal: Make Believe, and more. Hands-On Activities: Visitor photography encouraged; free Art Packs filled with gallery activities; sketching and poem-writing activities The Building: a 19th-century library with a new wing added in 1991 to accommodate the growing collection Pro Tip: the museum stays open late (until 8 p.m.) on the third Thursday of every month Special Programs: free guided tours, artist interviews, and a kids' art camp
