Spreading Our Wings with Sojourner Truth
The mission of the Sojourner Truth Multicultural Art Museum & Development Center (SoJo) is to foster personal and civic well-being in our community through fine, applied, and performing arts. We believe that the desire to experience and participate in creativity is essential to optimum human expression and development.
We carry out our mission by increasing access and exposure to art, by developing understanding and appreciation of art through educational and academic programs, and by inviting active participation of community members of all ages in creating and promoting art.
Multiculturalism is key, as all members of our very diverse Sacramento community are recognized, celebrated, and included in all aspects of our organization. We acknowledge that art—an essential, encompassing life element —has the ability to produce an environment with a productive cultural exchange of ideas. In addition, it has been proven that art promotes acquisition of intellectual skills in literature, science, and math. For these reasons, art must be a priority in human development.
Through our active outreach efforts, children, youth, adults, families, and organizations within the local community, the larger Sacramento area, and in other Northern California locations participate in our art and personal development programs.
