On Dec.1 the Ventura College Art Department held the grand opening of their remodeled Studio Arts Building (SAB) and the newly constructed New Media Gallery at 4667 Telegraph Road. It featured studio class demonstrations, faculty and student displays, and a closing reception . The Art Department maintains two galleries: Gallery 2, a student-run gallery and art lab, and the New Media Gallery exhibiting work by historically significant and nationally known artists. Additionally, these exhibition spaces provide students with hands-on experience in gallery and museum management.
