Founded in 1965, the Triton Museum of Art is a contemporary fine art museum located across the street from Santa Clara Civic Center. The museum is a destination spot for the community, providing a venue where local artists showcase their work, and where students of all ages learn about the creative process. The Triton Museum of Art exists both to embrace and expand the lives of the people of Santa Clara County and the Greater Bay Area through a program of art, education and community involvement. The museum is available for rental to corporate, private, nonprofit organizations and individuals.
Designed by San Francisco architects Barcelon and Jang, the 22,000 square-foot museum features high ceilings, pyramidal skylights and a graceful curved glass wall that overlooks the Sculpture Garden. The spacious building allows for versatile presentations or events, and invites a lively dialogue between inside and outside, art and nature.
The 1866 Jamison-Brown House on the Triton Museum of Art grounds is one of the most outstanding examples of surviving architecture of the 1860s. The house is of significant importance because its history reflects the changing taste of American architectural styles over a period of seventy years. From Victorian to Prairie to Colonial Revival, the craftsmanship and attention to detail is superb. This historic home is a popular choice for intimate occasions or family gatherings.
