New Pacific Studio Vallejo
The mission of New Pacific Studio, established in California in 2000, is to foster new forms of cross-fertilization among contemporary creative communities around the north and south Pacific.
We collaborate with museums, libraries, environmental centers and many other institutions to promote the creative reinterpretation and preservation of many kinds of cultural and natural heritage. We have a passion for story-collecting from people of all ages.
