Regional Art Museum

Conejo Hills



The California Museum of Art Thousand Oaks (CMATO) is making great strides toward the establishment of an accredited world class art museum which will serve as a cultural centerpiece for our community. Over the past year our accomplishments have focused on laying a solid foundation on which to grow, including the following:

• Engaged with an experienced museum consultant to complete a Strategic Plan, Board Policies and Procedures, and new bylaws to guide us toward our goals in a professional manner

• Elected a new Board of Directors who provide a broad range of experience and expertise to lead the organization and established Board committees that are actively engaged in site issues and fund development to support the long term viability of our mutual vision

• Reformulated the former Museum Task Force as the new Museum Council to focus efforts on building museum membership and sponsoring programs and events to enrich and educate our members and the community

In the next several months, we intend to establish a temporary museum site from which to expand art education outreach programs and serve as a base from which to focus our effort on building the permanent museum at the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza.

The California Museum of Art Thousand Oaks (CMATO) is committed to serving diverse audiences through the exhibition, interpretation, and exploration of the fine and design arts.

To exhibit the best examples of fine and design arts, to offer educational art programs for all ages, and to present national and international traveling exhibitions.
