Arts, Music, and Theater
Santa Cruz County has a very lively performing arts, visual arts, and music scene. From world-class performances to hand-made crafts, Santa Cruz is an art-lover's delight.
Public Art and Galleries
Santa Cruz County is home to a wide array of Art Galleries & Dealers, artists, painters, and sculptors. Pacific Avenue alone has more than 20 public art pieces, which you can view using the Public Art Walking Tour brochure.
