The Art at the Dana Adobe exhibit brings art and history together for this special community celebration of the Dana Adobe Cultural Center. This project is the result of dedication and hard work to preserve the Dana Adobe, to educate the community, and to keep the local history alive through art.

The San Luis Outdoor Painters for the Environment (SLOPE) artists are honored to be part of this new beginning and to share artwork they have created for many months, painting the adobe and surrounding area. During this exhibition, the Dana Adobe Cultural Center will receive a portion of art sales. Discover paintings by the following SLOPE members: Dennis Curry, Bruce Everett, Larry Kappen, Bernie Kurtz, Mark Mertens, Denise Schryver, Rosanne Seitz, and Laurel Sherrie.
