Although Oxnard is an hour's drive north from Los Angeles, this art gallery merits the trip. Constructed with funds donated by Andrew Carnegie in 1906, the building itself is the really the main attraction. The elegant Neo-Classical structure was originally used as a library, but was transformed into a cultural center in 1963. The collection consists primarily of 20th century works, including the Carnegie collection that began in 1924. Some of the artists found here include Arthur Beaumont, Cornelius Botke, Colin Campbell Cooper, Katherine Leighton and many others. The museum closes every six weeks to prepare for its new installation, so be sure to call before visiting.
