The Santa Paula Art Museum, Jeanette Cole Art Center was established to preserve and share Santa Paula's artistic heritage. The Santa Paula Museum permanent collection includes more than 200 historical and contemporary works of art. In addition the SPAM houses the Santa Paula civic art collection. This extraordinary assemblage is composed of nearly 300 award-winning entries from the annual Santa Paula Art Show, begun in 1937.
The SPAM features rotating exhibitions of regional art.
The Museum is housed within the historic Limoneira Building. Built in 1924, the classic two-story structure was designed by the famed local architect Roy Wilson, Sr. to accommodate the offices of the Limoneira Company. The building was renovated and reopened as the Santa Paula Art Museum in 2010.
