Documented Artists

Through a jury of peers, FOTM selects 8-10 artists each year for formal documentation. Each artist's archive consists of extensive recorded oral histories, video taped interviews, a visual library, the collection of papers, publications, ephemera and photographs.  The artist index page is a complete listing of master artists relating to Ventura County that we have documented to date.
