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
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:

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.

The Silver Linings Family Trio (the live music for this event) is comprised of family members of Carol Rosenak’s former husband, well known local composer, John Biggs.  His two daughters: Adrienne Biggs and Jennifer Biggs Walton will be playing violin and his grandson, Oliver Walton will be playing cello. They honored to be performing for this tribute event.

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