About Us

Since 1976, Sun Gallery has stimulated continuing community interest in the arts and expanded the image of the City of Hayward as a cultural center. We provide visual art exhibitions and educational programs that reflect the diverse cultural populations of Hayward and its surrounding area.


The gallery acts in partnership with local institutions of education and government, businesses and corporations, and community service organizations to develop quality visual arts programming that welcomes and engage audiences of all ages, in order to enhance the relationship between the visual arts and day to day life experiences.
