Peninsula Art Museum Executive DirectorRuth Waters has had a busy few months as sheand a set of other artists have been packing upmost of their belongings from studios inBelmont for a new home in Burlingame.The museum and Peninsula Art Institute havesigned a 10-year lease for a two-story buildingon El Camino Real next to the BurlingamePolice Station and crews are busy getting thespace ready for a grand opening in March.“We are making it our own,”Waters saidabout the building at 1777 California Drive.Waters is leaving her old studio at the 1870Art Center on Ralston Avenue in Belmont andis getting ready to move a large art collectionfrom the Manor House at Twin Pines Park toBurlingame.The new space will feature artist studios,fourgalleries,a museum store and space for classes.The Burlingame facility will now house sev-eral different groups of artists once spread outover several facilities in Belmont,including theBarrett Community Center,an old schoolowned by the city.With Belmont as its landlord,however,Waters was unable to negotiate a new leasewith the city to keep the artists in place so shewent out looking for a new artists’space. Andshe couldn’t be happier.“The serendipity has been wonderful,”shesaid.Her son even asked her why she just won’tretire since she’s been a ﬁxture in Belmont fordecades.“Why retire? Retirement is not part of myvocabulary,”she said.The museum’s long-term goal was always toﬁnd a better space to showcase local artists’work,she said.About 14 artists that once called 1870 ArtCenter home will relocate to the Burlingamespace,which has been subdivided into twowings with lots of rooms.“The space is better in reality than on paper,”she said.The building now,though,is essentially ablank canvas with all the walls painted RichardMeier White.“We can hang art everywhere,”Waters said.As a nonproﬁt,one of the goals is to addteaching components to the facility. The muse-um is hoping to have Paintbrush Diplomacyconduct classes at its new facility.Paintbrush Diplomacy encourages awarenessof international issues and supports children’scauses through a variety of programs includingeducational exchanges,community exhibitsand special events.Waters is hoping to integrate art with scienceto give children an exciting way to learn.“The creativity level and tech level is so highin this area. It’s a perfect match,”she said.The museum’s grand opening will be March16.
