In November of 2018, the Conejo Valley region was left reeling from two back-to-back calamities: a deadly mass shooting at the Borderline Bar & Grill on November 7, followed by the devastating Woolsey wildfire on November 8. The events claimed lives, forced thousands to evacuate their homes and left a community grief-stricken.
Now, almost a year after the “twin tragedies,” artists of international and national renown will recall the community’s strength, compassion and connection through a powerful group exhibition opening October 18, 2019, at the California Museum of Art Thousand Oaks (CMATO), until February 16, 2020.
“Empathy: Beneath the Surface” will feature works by seven artists and include large-scale paintings, contemporary sculpture, mixed media, installation, a blue-chip virtual reality film, cinematic photography and stunning modern tapestries.
General admission is free. CMATO is open Thursday, 3:00-7:00 PM, and Friday-Sunday from 12:00-7:00 PM.
Location: The Oaks Mall, 350 W. Hillcrest Drive, 2nd Level, Thousand Oaks
