Art Stars are individuals, and public and private organizations in Ventura County the Arts Council annually recognizes. The Council solicits nominees in established categories and seeks peer review of the nominees before a winner in each category is selected. Those selected are honored with a beautiful one-of-a-kind sculptural award and celebrated among friends over a sumptuous meal.

The Art Stars Awards is an annual countywide event to recognize arts friendly civic organizations, businesses, government entities, local philanthropists, nonprofits, educators, student arts leaders, and artists serving their communities.
The Art Stars Awards event is a wonderful celebration of the arts in Ventura County. With this event the Ventura County Arts Council honors individuals, businesses and organizations that have taken the extra steps toward making the Arts more accessible to their fellow citizens – whether it is through funding the Arts, providing more cultural programs, or hands on work with children in the classroom. Their work has crisscrossed our entire geographic area – from Fillmore to Ventura to Thousand Oaks. And because of this, not only have the specific populations they serve benefited from their efforts, but their professionalism, dedication and commitment have in turn enriched the Quality of Life for all of us living in Ventura County.
