City of Ventura Municipal Art Acquisition


In The Rain (La Feria) selected for acquisition for Ventura’s Municipal Art Collection.

The Municipal Art Acquisition program was established by the City Council to document the history of visual art in Ventura by featuring and highlighting important works of art created by area artists. The collection provides increased access to artwork of high artistic merit and aesthetic quality through its display in the public areas of City Hall and other municipal buildings.

The Municipal Art Acquisition Committee, a subcommittee of the Public Art Commission, oversees the purchase of master works in a variety of artistic media. The Public Art Commission expands their collection through purchase of major artworks by leading area artists.


In The Rain (La Feria) was taken at Chapultepec Park, Mexico City. Fittingly, my father who worked for the City of Ventura had given me the camera I used to make this with. Proud knowing this hangs adjacent to work created by some of my former art teachers at Ventura College during the 1970s as well as other artists I knew at the time.
