What: The Museum of Ventura County announces and welcomes guests to attend the first official Santa Clara Street Garden art space event, Echoes of a Recent Past, a long-term art installation that incorporates repurposed, and reinterpreted materials found on developed lots in downtown Ventura. The artistic idea is to imagine a cultivated land experience, by using and showcasing the usefulness of discarded materials, space, and history. Artist Paul Lindhard’s theme is to use both historic and familiar concepts that can be found in our natural human habitat — in past, present, and fanciful. “Echoes of a Recent Past was an evolution of historic possibilities that all harkens for me to a future interaction for the museum and the community for that space to evolve,” stated artist Paul Lindhard.
Where: The Museum of Ventura County
100 East Main Street, Ventura, California 93001
The event will take place inside the sculpture garden, located on the Santa Clara Street side.
