Founded in 1978, the Conejo Valley Art Museum is a non-profit organization that supports 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.
Since 2011, Janss Marketplace has generously offered up a space across from Gold's Gym. Here, CVAM presents quality 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 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.
