With every turn you make in our coastal estate, you’ll be greeted with art commissioned and created by inspired visionaries, nearly all from the Southern California region. Contributing to the vibrant ambiance of The Seabird is a host of distinct paintings, sculptures and installations – all curated in partnership with Oceanside Museum of Art (OMA), a cultural landmark located in the heart of Downtown Oceanside. Echoing OMA’s curatorial mission of making fresh and new art experiences accessible to the city’s local and visiting population, we are proud to have opened The Seabird, and our sister property Mission Pacific Hotel, in partnership with the museum. Within our walls, we have housed 14 unique commissioned works of art, and boast more than 280 public spaces with art featuring work from over 120 artists between both of our properties. These pieces showcase and highlight an engaging range of art representing the diverse cultural landscape of Oceanside and Southern California. Many of the commissioned pieces have a connection to sustainability, ocean conservation, and to the community in which they are displayed. We invite you to explore and enjoy each piece during your stay at The Seabird.
Art At The Seabird Resort
Located in the south facing wing of The Seabird, OMA West Gallery, a dedicated satellite space for the museum, offers a rotating curation of art selected specifically for our resort. With every return visit you make to our property, we hope you will explore the creative iterations of local art that will be featured on a temporary basis to celebrate the active artistic life of Oceanside.
