But, one of the largest malls in Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties is increasing its cultural offerings. The California Museum of Art Thousand Oaks is moving into a more than 5000 square foot space in The Oaks mall in Thousand Oaks.

What is the value of art? Not its price tag but its honest-to-goodness true value? CMATO, the California Museum of Art Thousand Oaks, is making a very strong case that art is priceless. Perhaps not in the same way that a long-lost Van Gogh might be (although that would be lovely), but priceless in the sense that the value of what art brings us and what it brings out in us is beyond measure.

In a Ventura County art museum, Jean Saunders has just finished writing something on a triangular piece of cloth. She’s preparing to hang it on what looks like clotheslines running through the middle of  the California Museum of Art Thousand Oaks.   It’s a work in progress piece of art, being created by the public in response to the November 7th Borderline Bar and Grill attack in Thousand Oaks which left 12 victims dead.
