October 8-16, 2022

The Ojai Jail Arts Initiative is a site specific, multi-disciplinary group exhibition taking place from October 8th to 16th in and around the historic, decommissioned Ojai City Jail in downtown Ojai. Curated by Matt Henriksen, Elizabeth Herring, and Teddy Nava, the week-long exhibition will include new commissions by Brett William Childs, Annette Heully, Vanessa Wallace Gonzales, Hailey Loman, Sarah Mirk, and James Whipple. Connected through their ties to Ojai and Ventura county, the artists have been asked to respond to the jail as a site for investigating hyper local geography and social historical space, repositioning it as a generative, community space for arts and culture in the Ojai Valley.

This exhibition is public and attendance is free.

This project is partially funded by the City of Ojai Arts Commission Ojai Art Grant. We also thank The Ojai Institute, Lum Magazine, Christine Steiner, Cindy Convery, Jennie Prebor, and Brian Aikens for their additional support.
