The Arts Collaborative is an outgrowth of the Downtown Center for the Arts which was founded in 2006 by Armando Lopez. The Downtown Center for the Arts exhibited fine art with a focus on diversity of artists.
The Arts Collaborative was founded by Armando in 2014.
We sponsored La Orquesta Pasatono, a musical ensemble from Oaxaca, Mexico. They performed at the Oxnard College Theater.
The Arts Collaborative purchased and donated an Egyptian Sarcophagus to the Gull Wings Children’s Museum for their Egyptian Children’s Art Program.
We have also co-sponsored the Sergio Mendes & Nuvi Mehta & Friends concerts with The Ventura Music Festival.
Our current project is sponsorship of the Choral Tales Project. For further information on this project go to our website:
