The Museum SFV now resides of the historic grounds of a portion of Rancho Cordillera del Norte on the southwest corner of Nordhoff St. and Wilbur Ave. Much of our new programming will be offered outdoors. This will offer one of the finest cultural destinations in the San Fernando Valley for Museum members, donors and visitors to learn and enjoy. In fall of 2021 and into 2022 and beyond, there will be regular speaker events, special events including jazz concert series and multi-cultural events and activities.
The Museum SFV will strive to have tickets available online and offered for advance purchase. There will be opportunities to pay onsite and walk-up for certain events and activities.
The Museum SFV and Rancho Cordillera del Norte Foundation have created and produce diverse events to educate Museum members, donors, students and the general public on the culture of the valley. The shared goal is to offer The Museum SFV section of The Rancho as a cultural destination. The following annual events, with growth in attendance each year, are meeting these event and educational goals.
February - Black History Month
April - Magic Bus Book Faire
May - Pan-Asian Festival
May - Spring Artist Showcase
September - Fall Artist Showcase and Family Fun Festival
October - Latin Heritage Day
Additional cultural events are being planned.
The Museum SFV and its Public Art Initiative (PAI) normally offer annual spring (May) and fall (Sept.) and holiday (Dec.) artist showcases and special project programs. PAI members, Valley-based artists, have an opportunity to showcase their creative and artistic talents at these shows. There is an artist participation fee upfront and depending on the program, a shared revenue on the back end, or a combination. The general public truly enjoy these events and programs while supporting local artists.
