History of Sojourner Truth Multicultural Art Museum & Development Center

The Sojourner Truth Multicultural Art Museum & Development Center has been actively involved with youth and young adults in the South Sacramento area since 1996 when it developed numerous creative arts programs under the National Academic Youth Corps.  Its purpose was to enable youth from culturally diverse backgrounds to stretch their minds and imaginations and to provide a safe environment that stimulates creativity, promotes healthy lifestyles, and develops social skills.  After obtaining a 501C non-profit status in 2002, Sojourner Truth Multicultural Art Museum & Development Center has offered scores of no- or low-cost programs, workshops, and activities on site and out in the community to thousands of youth.  The Center’s programs have positively affected the lives of its participants and the cultural environment of the community. 

The Art Museum was founded as collaboration between Sojourner Truth Multicultural Art Museum and the Florin Business Arts Complex where the Museum is housed.  It offers a diverse spectrum of theme-oriented murals, art installations, exhibitions, events and programs representing African American, Mexican, Latino, Asian, Alaskan, Pacific Islander, Eastern, and Native Cultures.

Sojourner Truth Multicultural Art Museum (also known as SOJO Museum) was awarded official Sacramento Museum status in 2008, and in February 2009, participated very successfully in the highly attended Sacramento Free Museum Day.
