A few months ago, Felici Events blogged about Santa Barbara’s new overnight accommodations, Hotel Indigo. This boutique and unique hotel houses a satellite branch location for the Contemporary Arts Forum, a unique and boutique location to host a reception, cocktail party, rehearsal dinner or engagement fete.
Located in the beautiful downtown Santa Barbara area, the Santa Barbara Contemporary Arts Forum is an alluring, prestigious, classy venue for a wide array of special events. The gallery provides an exceptional space that combines world-class art exhibitions, an unparalleled atmosphere, and a convenient downtown location.
The building’s inviting modern interior and prestigious location, along with its state-of-the-art facilities make the Contemporary Arts forum conducive for celebrations and events in a cocktail style reception. They do let you know in advance what type of artwork they expect to displayed, in order for the client to plan their layout appropriately.
