ERNEST TIBBS — GRAMMY-WINNING BASSIST
In Appreciation of our Sponsors
The Ojai Art Center (also known as the Ojai Center for the Arts) is the longest continuously operating multi-disciplinary center serving the arts in the State of California.
The concept which became the Art Center was first suggested in 1936 as a means of bringing together five independent and struggling arts organizations in Ojai under one umbrella and one roof. Dr. Charles Butler, a local physician, and financier, initially proposed the idea to wide acclaim, and by 1939 the Art Center was built and occupied at 113 S. Montgomery St., just half a block away from Ojai’s famed Arcade downtown shopping district.
