Reception: Friday, October 8, 2022 4:30pm – 6:30pm
The public is invited to join Focus on the Masters Arts Archive & Library (FOTM) for a celebration of the creative spirit by underrepresented communities in our community with the Impact Project. With funding from the California Arts Council, this exhibit features collaborative artworks by each of the Immigrant, LGBTQ and Black communities of Ventura County.
This exhibit is a testament to the value of individual and community expression. We asked, “What would you want to express as a member of an historically underrepresented community?” One of the immigrant participants was taken aback and stated that no one had ever asked her that question. Her reaction underscores the need for these types of community projects where lesser seen points of view are illuminated.
Also featured is artwork by k-8 students who participated in our Learning To See Outreach (LTS) in-school art program.
