Originally built as a public library in the 19th century, this landmark San Jose venue has been lovingly rehabilitated – complete with a new wing addition – to house over 1,400 works of art on permanent collection as well as rotating international exhibits, all focused on contemporary artists.  

From the spacious New Wing Lobby, to the Skybridge Gallery, to the historic Wing Café and Charlotte Wendel Center, to beautiful galleries usable as cocktail reception venues, the museum offers flexible options for catered wedding celebrations of any size, small or large. The exterior “Circle of Palms” plaza is also a popular spot for outdoor ceremonies and events.  

Global Gourmet Catering is proud to be a preferred wedding caterer for the San Jose Museum of Art. 

What We Love About This Venue
Perfect for art lovers of all kinds, this historic museum adds creative flair and ambiance to South Bay wedding celebrations. The New Wing Lobby is home to three colorful Chihuly lighting pieces that sparkle above wedding guests, while the Café and Wendel Center offer convenient usage of the museum’s lounge furniture, tables and chairs. Great for larger weddings!
