A Woman’s Place: The March on Washington
This event has expired

(Always Call to Verify Dates & Times)
DESCRIPTION
   The Museum of Ventura County mounts an exhibit that pays tribute to Ventura County participants in January’s Women’s March on Washington called “A Woman’s Place: The March on Washington.” Comprising signs, posters, ephemera and multi-media presentations, the exhibition commemorates the efforts of women in Ventura County who took to the streets across the country to affirm their place in society. “A Woman’s Place” is a pop-up exhibit -- a temporary art event, short in duration and brought about by a significant public incident or occurrence.
   According to curator Anna Bermudez, “It was immediately apparent to me that the women’s march was history in the making. In my role at the museum, I felt that my participation could take the form of an exhibit that pays tribute to the women who marched, and to all women. My call for items was answered quickly and decisively–a real grassroots effort.”
   The exhibit comprises items from participants in the march, who demonstrated in Ventura, Los Angeles and Washington DC. The items are highly personal—hats, t-shirts, bus tickets, photos and signs—each fortifying a strong and lasting message. First-hand accounts from participants will be filmed and screened in the exhibit, providing an oral history element that will become a part of the museum’s library holdings.
   The opening reception will be held on Saturday, March 11, from 5:30 – 7:30 pm, will feature women who participated in the event across the country, representing multiple generations. There will be music and refreshments!
