The Conejo Valley Art Museum is a non-profit organization that originated in 1978 to support local arts in the Conejo Valley. Over the years it has resided in several locations in Thousand Oaks while the Museum's Board of Trustees work towards obtaining additional funds to acquire a permanent home.
In 2011, the owners of the Janss Marketplace generously offered up a space adjacent to the Gold's Gym and Sunset Terrace restaurant. In this space, CVAM presents quuality exhibits of contemporary, ethnic and historical origin, as well as changing exhibits. There is also a gift shop that stocks folk art from around the world, jewelry, art objects, cards and books, as well as a small, but growing, reference library. Admission is free. The Museum is currently open Wed-Sun from noon to 5pm.
The CVAM's primary annual fundraiser is its annual ArtWalk in Thousand Oaks that takes place on the first weekend of June. ArtWalk is a two-day juried fine art and designer craft show.
