The Carnegie Art Museum is a cornerstone that makes Oxnard an arts destination in Ventura County. We have found in the institution a valuable partner that promotes local artists and continuously gives back to the community.

Who We Are - Carnegie Art Cornerstones
A cornerstone is a key initial piece in the solid foundation upon which something strong and sustainable is built.
We are still here! We will continue to build on the base we started years ago.
The Carnegie Art Cornerstones (our new name) maintains the creative flame in the very-much-alive center of the local contemporary art scene at the Carnegie Studio Gallery in Oxnard. Our gallery was always there, next to the museum, but now it is our home and hub.
We invite you to join us in celebrating and participating in the contemporary art scene at the Studio Gallery.
Who We Want to Be - Shining a Light on the Future
Our greatest hope is to see the museum re-open in the future. This will take some strategizing, time, treasure and, most importantly, community support.
Meanwhile, one of our immediate goals is to create a vibrant cultural anchor for the SoCal contemporary art scene in Oxnard with ongoing exhibitions, special programs/ events, children/family activities, and, of course, interactions among our artists, curators and the community.
Come visit, view art with us, talk art with us, engage in the cultural heritage of your community with us!
