Take the plunge into summer with Splash!, an exhibition highlighting ocean-inspired art and Ventura’s beach resort past, running July 2 through September 18 at the Museum of Ventura County. Artwork by more than 30 regional artists can be seen throughout the museum’s galleries, plaza, and courtyard, including large-scale sculptural installations and artistic surfboards. The historical component of the exhibit contrasts early 20th century beach wear with today’s trends, explores 1960s surf culture, and offers a look back at Ventura’s former Bath House, unique “Tent City” and Pierpont Bay resort.

The opening reception is on Friday, July 1, from 5:30-8:30 p.m., and includes music by The Soul Surfers and entry to all galleries. Admission is $5 for the general public; museum members are free. For reservations call 805-653-0323 x 7.

The exhibit’s sculpture and sculptural installations are by Jessica Bodner; BiJian Fan; Matt Furmanski; Gerri Johnson-McMillin; R. Nelson Parrish; Chris Provenzano; Blakeney Sanford; and Kenji Webb. Photography, painting, mixed media, glass, and fiber art includes work by Erik Abel; Benjamin Anderson; Briana Bainbridge; Chris Charney; Isabel Downs; Dan Harding; Anna Karakalou; Jim Knowlton; Ryan Loughridge; Jim Martin; David Pu’u; Roxie Ray; Joni Sternbach; and Sylvia Torres.
