We are not a collecting museum, but focus on bringing quality art, in all its forms, to the community.  Programming includes 8-10 exhibits each year by artists from around the local area, region, and the world representing a broad variety of media and genre.  We produce at least one theatrical offering per year, and offer classes and workshops in several disciplines.

25th Anniversary Geocache Challenge

As part of the Janice Mason Art Museum’s 25th anniversary celebration, the museum board decided to hold a Geocache Challenge.  We are proud to be part of the history of Cadiz and wanted to highlight other historical places and events within the Cadiz city limits.  There are 7 JMAM geocaches placed throughout the City of Cadiz. If you locate each geocache, and collect a numbered aluminum tree tag from each cache, you can turn them in at the Janice Mason Art Museum and receive one of 200 (??) Commemorative Coins created for this event.  The challenge began September 18, 2023.
