The Arts are an integral part of life in Sunnyvale, part of what makes living and working here special.

Sunnyvale's General Plan encourages and welcomes the presence of Arts and artists of all types and recognizes that the Arts can help promote awareness, understanding and communication among different cultures and groups within the community.

Many City-sponsored Arts activities in Sunnyvale take place at the Sunnyvale Community Center complex, including performances at  Sunnyvale Theatre , the annual Hands on the Arts festival, and opportunities for practicing artists to work alongside each other in our Open Pottery Studio and Open Painting Studio.

Sunnyvale Recreation offers a wide range of performing and visual arts classes for children, teens and adults at the Community Center and and other nearby venues.

Sunnyvale also has a large collection of Public Art, located throughout the City for the enjoyment of residents and visitors alike.

Sunnyvale Theatre

Sunnyvale Theatre is an intimate 200-seat, professionally equipped theatre operated by the City of Sunnyvale. Sunnyvale Theatre is home to the City of Sunnyvale's Evenings of Cultural Arts concert series and resident performing companies California Theatre Center, Sunnyvale Community Players and Sunnyvale Singers. It is also in demand as a rental venue for music and dance recitals, film screenings, lectures and performances by individual performers and small groups.

Sunnyvale Theatre is located just one block west of El Camino Real at the Sunnyvale Community Center campus. Plenty of free parking is available in the lot off Michelangelo, adjacent to the Theatre.

The City of Sunnyvale encourages persons with disabilities to participate in our recreation programs. We will make reasonable efforts to accommodate persons with disabilities in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. If you require special accommodations, please call 408-730-7378, TDD 408-730-7501, at least five days in advance of the performance.

Sunnyvale Theatre is equipped with a limited number of assisted listening devices and limited wheelchair seating. We suggest you reserve these with the Box Office at the time you purchase tickets.  

Public Art

Sunnyvale has more than 100 pieces of Public Art at various locations throughout the City for the enjoyment of residents and visitors.

Some -- like the trinagular bronze sculpture El Paseo de Los Suenos at the corner of El Camino Read and Mathilda Ave. -- belong to and are maintained by the City as part of its permanent collection.

Many others -- including fourteen giant, steel Meadow Flowers recently “planted” along the Target storefront in Sunnyvale's blossoming downtown -- have been added as a result of Sunnyvale ’s Art in Private Development Program, which requires developers of large projects to install public artwork as part of their project.  

For more information about individual pieces of public art in Sunnyvale, including a map showing locations, please contact the Visual Arts Coordinator at 408-730-7758.
