More recent projects include a site-specific commission by the Los Angeles-based art collective FriendsWithYou and the special exhibition J.B. Blunk: Nature, Art & Everyday Life.

SHIPPING & RETURN OF ACCEPTED ARTWORKS
Shipped work must arrive at SAC by 5 pm on Monday, March 30. Artists are responsible for all shipping costs. Shipped work must be sent with a prepaid return shipping label inside the package. We will re-use your packaging for returns, so make sure it is sturdy. Make sure your shipping company will pick up at Sanchez Art Center, as we cannot deliver packages to shippers.
Sanchez Art Center carries $150,000 art insurance for damage or theft, subject to a deductible of $500, for which the Art Center will not be liable. The artist must agree to accept the terms and conditions of the policy and to release Sanchez Art Center, its Board of Directors, staff, volunteers, and agents; the Art Guild of Pacifica; and the City of Pacifica from any further liability.
