Throughout its 12-acre arts complex, with more than 9,000 feet of performance space, the California Center for the Arts intersperses a variety of mediums and disciplines with the overarching aim of promoting community building. The museum's three visual-art galleries and sculpture court have housed more than 75 exhibitions since 1994, including interactive exhibits on going "green" that feature tips from crocodiles and the Wicked Witch of the West. Currently, Patricia Patterson's exhibition Here and There, Back and Forth mystifies museum-goers with theatrical installations and painted snapshots. Along with free admission to the museum for two adults and up to four children, family memberships include priority seating and presale tickets to performances, invitations to preview events, and free admission for two adults to the Art & Intrigue show.

Praised by 92064 Magazine, creator Ben Hansen and his six-member company show the many musical uses of household items and junk with Street Beat: A Theatrical Drum and Dance Show. The players transform trash cans into percussive instruments and pay a chorus of vacuum cleaners to sing "Oye Como Va," helping them churn out a jazzy fusion of African, Cuban, and Latin beats. Hip-hop moves and breakdance acrobatics accompany the musical barrage, making for a stomping jubilee for the senses. The show also beats down the fourth wall and does the worm on it by beseeching participation from the all-ages audience, who are encouraged to protect themselves by wearing shoulder pads made out of xylophones.
