Grants to this Grantee
for cultural programs  
Located in John Steinbeck’s birthplace of Salinas, the National Steinbeck Center produces exhibits and cultural programs inspired by the author’s life and works. Following numerous efforts to revitalize the 37,000-square-foot museum and cultural center, the organization sold its namesake building to California State University, Monterey Bay in September 2015. The sale relieves the Center of significant long-term debt and enables it to remain a tenant in the building with greatly reduced exhibition and programming space. This grant will help the organization develop a suite of programs that are reflective of the Center’s new model and more focused on Steinbeck’s literary legacy.
