The Museum of Ventura County, along with partners, the City of Ventura, the Ventura County Arts Council and the Mexican Consulate in Oxnard invites the public to attend one of its Community Outreach Meetings which will be held in various parts of the county.
The Community Outreach Meetings are being held in order to gather input from community leaders and members of the public about what they want from their museum.
“We have been talking with long-time supporters and stakeholders about the future direction of the Museum but we also feel that it is vital to engage the broader community in a conversation about how the Museum can serve them because the Museum belongs to everyone,” said Elena Brokaw, Interim Executive Director of the Museum. “The Museum is not only the custodian of the County’s historic, cultural and artistic heritage, but also has a role in providing meaningful educational, intellectual, and cultural experiences for residents and visitors.”
The following provides the dates and locations of the Community Outreach Meetings:
OXNARD – CO-HOSTED WITH THE MEXICAN CONSULATE
Thursday, November 10, 5:30 – 7pm
3151 W 5th St., Oxnard, CA 93030

The Museum of Ventura County is on a brief hiatus at its downtown Ventura location in order to design and install a permanent exhibition on Ventura County history. Its Agriculture Museum in Santa Paula remains open during this period, as does the research library. Some of the special Museum programs, such as Free First Sundays for Families and popular community events such as the traditional Día de los Muertos celebration in November are still being held at the Museum during this time. The Museum galleries will re-open and public programming will resume in early January.
