San Juan Capistrano Art
Exhibit Project Management
In February, 2021, TFAO conducted a study for the benefit
of The Alliance for San Juan Art, directed towards locating project management
candidates for an art exhibit to be held in 2023 in San Juan Capistrano.
The search included inquiries with a variety of potential sources of names.

Excerpts from the inquiry letter:
- The Alliance for San Juan Art (TASJA), believes
that San Juan Capistrano, CA is worthy of major art exhibitions due to
both its rich history of artistic expression and inherent beauty.
TASJA seeks a business to perform non-venue functions for a prospective
equestrian themed exhibition, dedicated to the rich equine heritage
of the city, to principally benefit San Juan Capistrano Equestrian
Coalition (SJCEC). The exhibition may have an opening date from late
2022 through 2023. Objects may include both two and three dimensional pieces.
A venue or venues have yet to be determined.
- The last meaningful indoor San Juan Capistrano exhibits,
featuring either living or historic artists, were held in the late 1990s
through the early 2000s at Mission San Juan Capistrano. The most notable
was Romance of the Bells, organized as a partnership between
the Irvine Museum and the Mission. Later exhibits were based
on paint outs featuring California Art Club members, plus other
exhibits featuring other associations and individual artists
with diverse subject matter.
- In addition, the predecessor of Rancho Mission Viejo
Riding Park at San Juan Capistrano hosted unique outdoor exhibits,
the first being held in August 1992, with sponsorship by Joan Irvine Smith.
They featured early California (e.g. 1900-1920) impressionist art for sale
by leading southern California dealers.
- Non-venue functions sought:
- vendor selection and contracting
- catalogue design and production
- grant management
- agreements preparation
- preparator functions including installation, crating
- insurance and security
As a result of the survey, a suitable candidate was found.
