GCA's History


In 2013, the Association’s board approved the lease with the San Bernardino Municipal Water Department for the abandoned adobe building on 11th Street.


On November 16th, 2015 it was named the Garcia Center for the Arts. A home for creatives and art organizations the Garcia Center is a sturdy foundation for San Bernardino’s art renaissance.

The building was dedicated in honor of Ernest and Dorothy Garcia for their many contributions to the visual and performing arts.
