This fall, the Museum of Ventura County and the Ventura Botanical Gardens collaborated to present Arte Forastero, an outdoor sculpture exhibit including more than 20 fine works of contemporary art from 14 Ventura County artists. The works are installed at two separate locations: the courtyard of the museum, which can be seen from Main Street in Downtown Ventura, and at the entrance and along the hiking trails of the Ventura Botanical Gardens behind Ventura City Hall. In addition, on Sept. 18, the museum hosted an after-hours open house for artists and members of the museum and the gardens. Attendees had the opportunity to examine some of the works up close, speak with artists and enjoy a safe evening of art and (socially distanced) conversation. Arte Forastero will be on exhibit through Nov. 30.
