Museum of Ventura County update for March 27— MVC NOW!

March 27, 2019
The next issue of MVC Then is now available! Written by library volunteer Andy Ludlum, “African American Voices from Ventura County’s Past” include recorded interviews from the Research Library’s oral history collection that provide us a glimpse into the lives of two remarkable women who were members of the earliest African American families to settle in Ventura.

Exhibit Sneak Peek: Chris Hillman "Time Between"
This Sunday is your last chance to see Chris Hillman: Time Between on display. Don’t miss out! Memorabilia collected in his six decade long career as a musician, singer and songwriter include instruments, rare photographs, gold records, and more.
Long time resident of Ventura, Chris Hillman is a national treasure. Along with frequent collaborators Roger McGuinn, David Crosby, Gram Parsons, Stephen Stills and Steve Hill, he was a key figure in the development of country rock, virtually defining the genre through his seminal work in “The Byrds” and “The Flying Burrito Brothers”, and later became the leader of the country act “The Desert Rose Band”.
