After a challenging two years, the Ventura Unified School District and Museum of Ventura County are happy to announce that the annual VUSD Districtwide Student Art Show is back! The VUSD Art Show will run at the Museum of Ventura County from June 2 to June 19, 2022. The opening night reception is a free event held on Thursday, June 2, from 5-8 pm. All are welcome, and student musicians will be performing during this event. Following the viewing, high school student awards will be presented at 6:30 pm.
According to Elena Brokaw, Barbara Barnard Smith Executive Director of the Museum of Ventura County, “This partnership between the school district and the museum is a direct result of our community’s commitment to the Arts. Ventura is a city where art and artists are celebrated and welcome. We are proud to be a part of this annual tradition.”
“With the passage of Measure Q, Measure R, and the passage of art specific parcel tax Measure H in 2020, the citizens of Ventura made it very clear that they believe in the value of art education in our public schools. Preserving and supporting a diverse array of educational opportunities is very important to us as a school district. This is nowhere more evident than in our continued support of Arts education for all students,” stated Sabrena Rodriguez, VUSD Board Member and longtime Arts Collaborative member.
