Three New Exhibits at Museum of Ventura County – Free Opening Reception

June 18 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Museum of Ventura County
100 East Main Street
Ventura, CA 93001 United States

Join us for the free opening reception of three new exhibits at the Museum of Ventura County on June 18 from 3pm to 5pm! Museum Members receive a complimentary ticket to enjoy a Bee’s Knees cocktail.

? All That Glitters Is Not Gold
A surprising history of the 1920s and Prohibition in Ventura County. As population and wealth boomed, creativity flourished – but so did a tide of repression and exclusion. This exhibit tells the local story of the jazz age through our collections and archives.

This exhibit made possible in part by the generous support of:
The John Hammer Family, The Heritage Fund at VCCF, The DeArkland Family, and The Chrisman Estate Company

? Chromatic: The Museum in Six Colors
MVC’s permanent collection, amassed over 100 years, ranges from everyday items belonging to real people who lived and worked in the county, to rarities and precious works of art. Each object has a story to tell, and this exhibit opens the door to those stories.

This exhibit made possible in part by the generous support of:
TOLD Foundation
and Pierpont Racquet Club

? Always Keep Creating: The Resiliency of Carol Rosenak
Renowned local artist Carol Rosenak (1925-2002) was known for her still life paintings featuring exquisite textures and intricate details. Spanning over 30 years of her career, this exhibit highlights her early printmaking, still lifes, and the abstract style she adopted later in life.

This exhibit made possible in part by the generous support of:
the Bonita McFarland Endowment Fund

Opening reception made possible by:
Paradise Pantry, Peirano’s, and Ventura Spirits
