Palos Verdes Art Center

Beverly G. Alpay Center for Arts Education

Rancho Palos Verdes, California


Palos Verdes Art Center / Beverly G. Alpay Center for Arts Education, a nonprofit community visual arts school and gallery, inspires individuals to create, appreciate and celebrate art. Since it was founded in 1931, PVAC’s exhibition, education, and outreach programs have made the visual arts available, accessible and affordable.

Through programming collaborations with other community groups and historians, CHSA facilitates sharing of stories, experiences, and research. CHSA offers tours of the Museum and the surrounding Chinatown community for a nominal fee. The annual program varies and typically includes film screenings, performance art, book talks, presentations, guided workshops, panel discussions, and so much more. CHSA's San Francisco home is also the largest artifact in our permanent collection, the historic Chinatown YWCA building designed by trailblazer architect Julia Morgan in 1931.
