Never-before-seen letters and photos reveal desperate searches for loved ones.
The challenge for artists, artisans and community members is to tell their stories through an article of clothing or accessories designed for this wearable art show.
The exhibit’s extensive collection of Barr’s iconic photographic images leads the viewer through his extraordinary life and career.
Thomas Fire, Our Story Recording Sessions
We invite everyone to help us remember and document our common experience by collaborating with the Museum of Ventura County and CAPS Media to create a series of exhibits, videos and stories that were forged by fire. The Museum and CAPS staffs, along with students in the El Camino high school ECTV program, are gathering photos, videos, artifacts and personal anecdotes from the public, officials, responders and others to create a multidimensional, multimedia series of presentations that capture the remarkable stories of the most devastating natural tragedy in county history. We welcome everyone to contribute to the archive of media and stories of heroism, sacrifice and tragedy.
