Regional Art Museum is Renamed California Museum of Art Thousand Oaks

The California Museum of Art Thousand Oaks (CMATO) is the new name for the Regional Art Museum (RAM).  The new name was announced at a town hall meeting on September 18, 2012.  The new name fully encompasses the mission and vision of the museum that will serve the communities of California. 

The development of a world-class art museum as a cultural centerpiece for our community is coming to fruition. The museum will be a vital resource and will offer access to, education of, and appreciation for contemporary and traditional fine arts. The museum will be located adjacent to the Civic Arts Plaza.

The CMATO's mission is committed to serving diverse audiences through the exhibition, interpretation, and exploration of the fine and design arts.
