Artist and conservation advocate Patti Jacquemain founded the Wildling Museum in 1997. With her devoted husband Dave Gledhill and their friends working tirelessly, the Wildling opened its doors in Los Olivos in 2000.  The Wildling moved to its current larger location in Solvang in 2013. Since its founding, the Wildling has grown an active community of museum volunteers, museum members, board members, advisory council members and staff. The museum engages over 12,000 people a year through art classes for young and old, community art shows, film screenings, lectures and more!
