Explore the unique and thought-provoking Eric Stuart lead this inaugural educational and cultural event enjoyed by hundreds of children in 2023 and The Museum SFV plans to have it return next year.

In 2023, The Museum SFV held its 2nd annual Pan-Asian Festival. A beautiful community event showcasing and highlighting the cultures of prominent countries in Asia and the Pacific Islands through expressions of their art, music, dance and food.
The Museum of the San Fernando Valley and its Pubic Arts Initiative have been offering arts programming for over 12 years. It is a real pleasure to identify, leverage and showcase the talents of valley-based artists. The event now also offers a Family Fun Festival to keep kids busy while parents buy art to support the creative community.
As part of Hispanic Heritage Month, The Museum SFV is building its Latino Heritage Day to include history, art, dance, music and cultural food to showcase the rich Latino heritage and communities comprised in the SFV.
The Museum SFV and the Public Arts Initiative offer an opportunity for dozens of valley-based artists to focus on one type of artwork and allow their creativity to flow to the benefit of the SFV community. Unmasking the SFV and creative chairs have been the last two programs.
